Ilorin - Kwara United FC of Ilorin on Wednesday defeated the newly promoted Nembe City FC of Yenegoa 2-0 in the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) week 8 match.

Meanwhile, Meremu Okara, the Technical Adviser of Nembe City said the away team paid for their loss of concentration in the second half with the defeat.
