Lobi Stars have extended their lead at the top of the NPFL table to two points and still have a game in hand following a 2-1 win over Nasarawa United in Markurdi on Sunday.
Gbenga Ogunbote’s men opened scoring early in the 8th minute through Chigozie Obasi and it wasn’t until additional time in the second half that they got their insurance goal.
Samad Kadiri turned in with the striker with a minute of additional time played.
There was a late surge from the visitors as Chinedu Ohanachom scored on 90+3 minutes and it proved to be just a consolation.
