Babajide Adewunmi – EverBlazin

Just as expected, the NPFL has started on an emphatic note with 32 goals scored already, and 3 away wins recorded so far inspite of the delay of some fixtures.

As we patiently await the outcome of the matches between Wikki Tourists vs Plateau United and Kwara United vs Enyimba yet to take place, Sportyleague brings to you some flakes from the second round of matches.

For the first time in the history of Nasarawa United, they found joy in Owerri against Heartland after picking up the three points first ever away win against Heartland; making it back to back wins for the Lafia Township outfit having won their first game against Wikki Tourist last week.

It must be noted that all the four goals of Nasarawa United have come from open play this term.

For Heartland and Fidelis Ilechukwu, they’ve started the season on a disappointing note. It’s their second consecutive loss of the season.

Meaning that Coach Fidelis Ilechukwu has lost thrice in his first 13 home games as head coach of Heartland FC, as many as he lost in his 60 home games in charge of MFM FC in the NPFL.

Before last Saturday’s shocker, Rivers United have never beaten Abia Warriors in their last three NPFL visits. So, Rivers United also have recorded two wins from two matches played so far – the momentum from the continent is brazen. Last season, they drew their opening two fixtures against Kano Pillars and Heartland.
