Akwa United made a short trip to Omoku, where they face Go Round FC in a Matchday 18 fixture, and it was a good hunt for the Promise Keepers as they snatched a 1-0 win to extend their lead at the top of table in Group B.
With the scoreline still goalless, Aniefiok Godspower was called upon to replace the team Mfon Udoh – the league’s top scorer.
That substitution would prove important as the towering forward headed home the winner in additional time, leaving the home team’s goalie and defenders in a heap inside the box.

The win guaranteed Akwa United will remain top of the league table in Group B and extend their lead to fours; at least until the FC Ifeanyi Ubah’s game against Abia Warriors and it could be cut to one point.
