The Nigeria Professional Football League ( NPFL ) Match Day 22 clash between Enugu Rangers and Nasarawa United finished in a stalemate as the defending champions needed to fight hard to share the spoils in Sunday’s pulsating encounter.
After a desolate first half, the young men from Lafia got in front in the 75th minute through Thomas Zenke’s strike which fell off an assist by Adamu Hassan.
With another home thrashing staring right at them in the face, the Flying Antelopes needed to bend over and they were able to share a point after an equaliser by Godwin Aguda in the 80th minute.
Ousmane Pape Sane came up with the assists for the Aguda equaliser, but Enugu fans were still left frustrated as the Rangers keep on struggling.
Meanwhile, MFM FC come back to winning ways in the wake of going winless in their last three league games as they beat FC IfeanyiUbah 1-0 at Agege Stadium on Sunday,
MFM’s goal was scored by Adebayo Waheed in the 19th minutes off an assist from Monsuru Bashiru. The duo of Stephen Odey and Sikiru Olatunbosun returned to action for the Olukoya Boys subsequent of featuring in the Super Eagles international outings against Corsica and Togo.
The win takes MFM, who are yet to lose at home this season, to second on the NPFL log with 37 points.
