Abuja - Bright Ejike scored the only goal of the game for Heartland FC as they won 1-0 at home against Lobi Stars in a Week 19 game of the Glo Premier League played on Sunday evening.
Ejike scored with a penalty kick in the 16th minute after Lobi’s Moses Bunde handled the ball inside his own box. The goal was the striker’s eighth this season, Kick Off Nigeria reports.
