Match day 17 saw another mouthwatering tie as Rivers United stops Enyimba from making it twelve matches unbeaten in the Nigerian Professional League as they win 1-0.
Enyimba FC who hoped to uphold their unbeaten run today at Yakub Gowon Stadium so that hope dashed as a thirteen minutes goal from Ossy Martins gave the Rivers side a much needed win.
After some changes to the side that played Rangers with Udeagha starting in place of the injured Guera Udechukwu who gets a rare start in attack and Bala returned to the squad, but starts on the bench.
Enyimba who was pretty much the better side, started on high as players like Dimgba, Udechukwu and Zenke pushed the home side. But it was not long as Ossy Martins scored for the Rivers giants.
The Aba boys pushed for the equaliser with coach Abdulrahaman making two tactical changes bringing in Osadiaye coming on for Dimgba, Bala coming on for Udeagha and a late change but it was not to happen as Enyimba lost all three points at the end of the final whistle.
