Etebo scores 10th league goal

Warri Wolves striker, Oghenekaro Etebo (pictured), has hit double figure of goals in the Glo Premier League after helping his team to a 1-0 win over Enugu Rangers on Sunday.

Etebo is now on 10 goals and just one short of leading scorer, Dele Olorundare who missed Sunshine Stars' trip to Gombe United.

The former Lord Honour FC attacking midfielder scored from the spot on 25 minutes as his club eased to a win and amassed the full points.

Wolves are in second place on the log and two points behind table-topping Kano Pillars, who are on 39 points.

Match-winner, Etebo, said afterwards to "It was a difficult game for us but I am happy we got the win and more importantly the points."

In Bauchi, Bayelsa United thought they had held on enough to take points off Wikki Tourists.

But Ahmed Usman popped up with four minutes to time to smash the hopes of ex-Wikki manager, Ladan Bosso and his men leaving Bauchi with a point.

In spite of the win, the Tourists still remain at the base of the Premier League table.

3SC also suffered from conceding a late goal at Lobi Stars.

Nanen Imenger scored the winner for Cup semifinalists, Lobi Stars in the 75th minute after only coming on five minutes earlier as a substitute.

Imenger showed himself to be a fox in the box when he turned home the only goal of the game from a cross.

It was a 10th league defeat for Sunshine Stars at the Pantami Stadium as they lost 0-2 to Gombe United.

A second half brace of goals from the impressive Babangida Ibrahim ensured Gombe United climbed into the top half of the standings.

Ndubuisi Ekwuruibe continued his impressive outing for Kaduna United since joining from Enyimba in mid-season.

Ekwuruibe's first half goal condemned Heartland to their 12th loss of the Premier League campaign as the Crocodiles moved within one spot to the top 10.

At the Samson Siasia Stadium in Yenagoa, Nasarawa United suffered a second loss in all competition in five days when they lost 0-1 to Nembe City.

Nasarawa United had been bundled out of the Federation Cup by Enyimba in Abeokuta last Wednesday before Sunday's loss in the league.

Wing back Jonathan Zikiye scored for City on the volley from Ebitimi Agogu's assist right on the break.

The Solid Miners should have conceded more than a goal but for the brilliance of ex-Nigeria under-17 goalkeeper, Dami Paul.

City moved five points clear off the drop zone while Nasarawa United are just two points above the bottom four.
