NPFL Week 15 Wrap Up: Rangers Dethrone MFM In Group A As Akwa Remain Top Of Group B

There was a significant change in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) table after the week 15 games played in various venues this weekend.

At the Agege Stadium, MFM FC ceded their top position in Group A to Rangers International after a goalless draw with Lobi Stars on Sunday.

The Olukoya Boys who had remained top of the league table before Matchday 15, failed to record the much needed victory against Lobi Stars as they slipped to third place behind Rangers who still have two games at hand and Enyimba FC.

Rangers who crashed out of the CAF Confederation Cup group game redirected their focus to securing another continental ticket picking a 1-2 away victory against Sunshine Stars at Akure courtesy of a brace from their Ivorian import, Pascal Seka.

Cletus Emotan’s 67th-minute effort could not salvage anything for Rivers United, as Tasiu Lawal and Usman Barau scored in the 18th and 51st minute to help Katsina United to a 2-1 win at home.

Enyimba moved back to the second spot with a 2-0 win against Kwara United as Stanley Dimgba scored a brace for the seven-time champions in both halves.

Akwa United maintained their grip as group leaders in Group B following another impressive 3-0 drubbing of Kano Pillars in Uyo.

Delta Force suffered another defeat on the road, to Gombe United at the Pantami Stadium in Gombe State.

Rangers victory against Sunshine Stars was the only away victory recorded this week and there were just two draws in all 12 games played.
