Enyimba have moved to the third position on the NPFL table after a 2-1 away win against Adamawa United at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium, Bauchi.
The People’s Elephant dominated the early exchanges and raced into the ascendancy in the eighth minute through Anayo Iwuala before Imoh Omot doubled the advantage in the 32nd minute. But they lost many gilt edge chances with Iwuala, Gabriel Orok guilty of calamitous misses even in the second half.
Adamawa United halved the deficit from the penalty spot in the 61st through their inspirational skipper, Idris Abubakar and they threatened a late fight back thereafter.
Enyimba are now on third spot in the NPFL with 12 points from six games and they host Katsina United in Aba on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Rivers United head coach, Stanley Eguma has described their CAF Confederation Cup playoffs round clash with Enyimba as battle between familiar foes
