A late strike by Ilevbare Daniel of Rovers FC dented the hope of Osun United to return to the second position on the log of Group B1 in a highly explosive encounter played at the Ilorin Township Stadium on Wednesday.
The hosts, who travelled from West to South and the North Central of the country to play 3 matches within a week appeared fagged out from the blast of the whistle as Ilevbare Daniel, Ndukwu Chukwu and Asuquo Inyang threatened in the first half but were denied by Olusola Akilapa, Jerry Okon and goalkeeper Arinze Okoro.
A good tactical substitution in the second half by Rovers coach through the introduction of Josiah Daniel and Daniel Eni alongside Ilevbare Daniel who started the game helped the visitors threaten Osun United defence and it yielded a good result at the death of the game.
3SC continued their perfect run with a 3-1 win over Nilayo FC in the South West derby.
The Oluyole Warriors have now gone 8 games without dropping a point in the 2021 NNL season.
The match between Go-Round FC and Vandrezzer FC could not hold due to some unresolved issues between the host and the media team of Vandrezzer.
