Aminu's brace see off Bayelsa Utd

Kaduna United midfielder, Isah Aminu scored twice to help his club to a two-nil victory over Bayelsa United in Wednesday's Glo Premier League match.

Head coach of Kaduna United, Ben Duamlong, opted to start in goal with John Shuaibu while Rabiu Hussaini, the club's preferred first choice this term, was on the bench.

Emmanuel and Peter Ambrose, who are brothers to Super Eagles defender, Efe Ambrose, also started for Kaduna United.

Ex-Nembe City goalkeeper, Japhet Opubo also got the nod ahead of Gambo Gideon in goal for Bayelsa United.

But it was Aminu, who stole the show and scored in each half of the game to help the Crocodiles down Bayelsa United.

Premier League new boys, Giwa FC, gave the champions, Kano Pillars, quite a scare at a packed Rwang Pam Stadium in Jos.

Giwa FC took the lead just a minute past the half hour mark through Chinenye Agoha and they kept their lead into the break.

But Kabiru Umar nodded Kano Pillars back into the contest right on the hour mark and then got himself sent off by centre referee, Paul Umuago, minutes later.

Okey Emordi's 10 men then did well to hold on till full time to pick a second draw on the road in four days as Giwa FC felt they had a case for three penalty shouts.

Enyimba now under caretaker coach, Imama Amapakabo, played out a goalless draw at Warri Wolves.

The draw will come as succour to Enyimba faithful after back-to-back losses to newcomers, Abia Warriors and FC Taraba, in the premier division, which saw their head coach, Zachary Baraje being handed an indefinite suspension alongside his assistant, Monday Odigie.

Enugu Rangers raced into a two-goal lead inside 60 minutes through Meshack Chukwubuikem and Christian Obiozor.

But the match, held at the Unec Stadium in Enugu, did not finish due to heavy rain and had to be called off in the 78th minute.

The remaining 12 minutes will now be completed on Thursday morning, according to the match officials.
