Akwa United on Saturday in the match day twelve fixture against Jigawa Golden Stars secured a consecutive away win at the Sani Abacha Stadium, Kano in the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) thorough Akarandut Orok’s goal.
It was one of those games that confirmed the resurgence of the Uyo side as Akwa United FC have now managed to lose just 1 of their last six Matches in an NPFL game with five wins.
Legendary striker Akarandut Orok got the goal becoming the first goal scorer of the first NPFL goal in 2020.
His goal against Jigawa Golden Stars today brings his tally to four in four consecutive games. Scoring in the 2-1 win against Rivers United and the lone goals against Dakadda, Lobi and Jigawa.
The lone goal came in the first of two added minutes Akwa in the first half. Ndifreke Effiong’s inch-perfect pass picked out Akarandut Orok who applies the finish expertly.
Resurgent Akwa United FC have won their last 3 matches with same scoreline (1-0), and Akarandut Orok scored all the goals.
Orok, whose 17 goals for Akwa Utd in a single season remains a record was the league highest goal scorer in 2009/2010 season before his exploits in Tunisia, UAE, & Bahrain where he won the league title with Al Hidd.
After the sack of their coach, John Obuh, Kennedy Boboye’s side has been in imperious form beating sister club, Dakadda International FC, Lobi Stars and now Jigawa Golden Stars.
The win takes the promise keepers to second place pending when the rest games will be played tomorrow.
