Jigawa Golden Stars lost their 10th game of the season on Saturday as they fell 2-0 on the road to fellow newly promoted side Dakkada FC in Uyo.
It has been a contrasting situation for the two teams in the top flight, having gained promotion from the NNL last season, with Dakkada climbing to fourth position on the log courtesy of the win.
Dakkada couldn’t break Jigawa’s defence in the first half, the visitors came into the game with the second worst defence in the league.
Jigawa had conceded 24 goals, only bottom side Adamawa United had shipped in more (31) after 16 round of games.
That defensive frailty will, eventually be exposed just two minutes after the restart.
Osimaga Duke scored in the 47th minute to break the deadlock.
The hosts will grab a second deep into the second half and it crushed the resistance of Jigawa.
Spencer Bassey was at the end of a choreographed move to slot home from close range and effectively end the contest.
Dakkada claim their 7th win of the campaign
