Ishaq Kayode’s effort help Rivers United open four points lead at the top of the League

Rivers United labored to a 2-1 in over Nasarawa United in the NPFL match day 15 encounter at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt on Saturday.

Nyima Nwagua and Ishaq Kayode were the star performer as the Pride of Rivers extend their lead on top of the NPFL log to four points.


Nyima Nwagua set up Chijioke Akuneto for the game’s opener after 23 minutes. Ishaq Kayode grabbed his 10th goal of the ongoing season and the game’s second 17 minutes later.

The Solid Miners then reduced the deficit, through Michael Tochukwu on 72 minutes, but Coach Stanley Eguma’s side held for a vital three points.

The Stanley Eguma’s tutored side will remain on top of the NPFL log after matchday 15 not minding the results from games to be played on Sunday.

An away game to Kano Pillars in Kaduna on Wednesday 2nd March is next for Rivers United but, just as importantly, the Pride of Rivers ended the month of February with a stirring and hugely welcome victory.
