Akwa United climbed to the top of the Group B summit in the Nigeria Professional Football League following a 2-1 victory against Gombe United on Sunday in the NPFL week 14 game.
Both teams settled for a barren draw in the first half but when the second half resumed, it was a different ball game as Akwa United came firing from all cylinder and finally broke the deadlock in the 74th minute through Cyril Olisemena before Wisdom Fernando put an icing to the cake in added time to wrap up the victory for the Promise Keepers.
Delta Force who acquired Kada City FC in the league, picked their first away point against Yobe Desert Stars in Damaturu.
Delta Force was humiliated 4-1 in their first away goal by Nasarawa United and the Asaba-based club finally got their first point on the road following a 0-0 draw against Yobe Desert Stars.
In Group A, MFM FC retained their top spot despite losing 1-0 to Kwara United at Illorin.
The Olukoya Boys fell to a 54th-minute goal scored by Kwara United forward, Shamsudeen Hashim, but with Enyimba held to a goalless draw by Bendel Insurance in Aba, MFM remains top of the group summit with 23 points ahead of Rangers and Enyimba who all have 21 points.
There was no away victory on Matchday 14 as all the visiting teams either held their hosts to stalemates or lost to the host.
