Enyimba’s title hopes dealt a blow

21 September 2015, 16:03

Lagos - Enyimba's chances of winning the Nigeria Professional Football League for the first time in five years was dealt a major blow as they lost 2-1 to El-Kanemi Warriors on Sunday.

The Warriors showed early signs of intent as Ifeanyi Mathew, Chinedu Ohanachom and Emmanuel Agali pressured the rear guard of the Peoples Elephant. Mathew had his third minute curling effort saved by Joshua Enaholo.

Agali also fired from close range two minutes later into Enaholo's hands. But it was Benjamin Turba who drew the first blood in the eighth minute with a powerful shot from outside the box after tactical lay by Ohanacho Chinedu.

The host mounted more pressure and Efe Yarhere fired in a curling shot on 25 minutes to increase the tally.

Enyimba captain, Chinedu Udoji, who played as a defensive midfielder made efforts to reduce the scoreline before half time. Enyimba left-back Idris Aloma had his effort denied by El-Kanemi goalkeeper George Michael. The first half ended 2-0 in favour of the host team.

Ifeanyi Anaemena was unlucky to hit wide from close range for Enyimba. Peter Onyekachi's celebration was cut short as his left-footed shot struck the El-Kanemi woodwork 14 minutes from time.

The introduction of Nzube Anaezemba sparked life into the visitors' approach to the game and with two minutes remaining in the game, Anaezemba scored the consolation goal which proved too little, too late as the warriors claimed the three points at stake.

El-Kanemi Warriors will now proceed to Jalingo for their match day 31 contest against FC Taraba on Sunday 27th September at the Jolly Nyame Stadium, while the league leaders play hosts to Wikki Tourists.

Enyimba can however take solace in the fact that closest rivals, Warri Wolves lost at Abia Warriors.
