Enyimba had to drag themselves from the dead to secure three points against a ferocious Lobi Stars led by in form Anthony Okpotu on Wednesday in the NPFL.
Mfon Udoh and Ike Ibenegbu scored to help the Elephants bounce back after last week’s loss to FC Ifeanyi Ubah in a derby.
However, for FC Ifeanyi Ubah Jos was not a good hunting ground when they faced league leaders, Plateau United.
Plateau United needed a first half goal to settle the contest against Yaw Preko’s men, and it helped them build a five points lead with MFM FC’s tie against Rangers force majeure following a downpour in Enugu.
Meanwhile, in the fight at the bottom, Sunshine Stars secured an away win in Port Harcourt.
Thompson Ezekiel scored against his former side to ensure Duke Udi’s men returned to winning form after a slip at their adopted grounds to Nasarawa United.
