Akwa United retains top spot after goalless draw vs Kano Pillars

Akwa United retained their place on top of Nigeria’s professional football league table after holding Kano Pillars to a scoreless draw in Kaduna.

 


The final moments of the game was completed this morning after it was abandoned due to crowd violence in the 85th minutes.

 

The top of the table encounter kicked off on Sunday, but it was interrupted after fans protested when the referee ruled out a late goal.

 

Pillars striker Nyima Nwagua had the ball in the back of the net four minutes from time, but match officials adjudged that striker was in an offside position, before converting the pass from Ahmed Musa.

 

The League Management Company is yet to comment on the event, but there is the possibility that Kano Pillars could be penalized.

 

Kano Pillars remains second on the NPFL table with 50 points after 27 matches, trailing Kennedy Boboye’s men, who sit at the top of the standings, by one point.
