NASARAWA UNITED STUN LEAGUE WINNERS, RIVERS UNITED: NOW 10TH ON THE LOG

June, 26 2022.

The Solid Miners continued with their quest for a top ten finish in the 2021/22 Nigeria Professional Football League Season as they put up a spirited performance to beat latest champions, Rivers United, on matchday 35 clash held at their temporary home ground, Jos International Stadium, on Sunday evening.


A 5th minute goal by Sunday Okereke after being found through by Chinedu Ohanachom saw Nasarawa United taking an early lead.


The home side held on to that scoreline going into the interval.


However, it was game on in the 80th minute after Sikiru Olatunbosun drew the visitors level.


Michael Tochukwu netted his 11th goal of the campaign after converting from twelve yards after his earlier set-piece ball caught the trailing arm of a Rivers United's player inside the box.


2-1 was the final score as the Solid Miners leapfrogged to 10th position with 47 points.


The team will travel to Ilorin, to face Kwara United in a North- Central Derby on 3rd July, 2022.
