The Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) entered week 4 on Wednesday with 22 clubs involved in action for the first time this season except for El-Kanemi Warriors and Nasarawa United game which will be played on Thursday.
With some games postponed in Matchday 1, Matchday 2 and Matchday 3, by the League Management Company (LMC) it was a midweek packed with actions across Nigeria.
Rangers FC first league game ended in a disappointing 1-0 loss to MFM FC at the Agege Stadium.
The Flying Antelopes who have been in action in the CAF Confederation Cup this season failed to kick start the season in grand style as a lone goal from Kabir Adeniji was enough to see the Olukoya Boys record their second win in three games.
In Benin, newly promoted Bendel Insurance first league game in front of their home supporters after 15 years ended goalless with Kwara United.
At the Goodwill, Abdul Maikaba returned to Uyo with Plateau United to deny Akwa United what would have been their first victory this season.
Homeboy, Mfon Udoh who rejoined Akwa United from Enyimba scored a brace and when it seemed the Promise Keepers were already pocketing all three points to hand Brazilian coach, Everton his first victory, Plateau United equalized through Benjamin Turba in added time.
Kano Pillars were shocked by newly promoted Gombe United at the Pantami Stadium.
Goals from Usman Musa in the 39th minute and Babangida Ibrahim was all Gombe United needed to send Pillars back to Kano empty-handed.
At the Aba Township Stadium, Enyimba and Lobi Stars who headlined Matchday 4 games settled for a barren draw.
The game was Lobi’s first of the season as they are presently playing in this season CAF Champions League.
