Lagos - The Glo Nigerian Premier League 2013/14 season
finally kicked off at the weekend after several months of postponement.
Five games were played, with Dolphins’ 1-1 draw against
Heartland in Owerri the high point, as all other home teams won their games.
Debutants Abia Warriors did well to spank Kaduna United 2-0,
while Nasarawa United suffered a 1-0 defeat in the hands of newcomers FC
Lobi Stars left it late to manage a 1-0 victory over Crown
FC, as Akwa United also got a slim 1-0 win over Gombe.
Enugu Rangers and Kano Pillars did not play as their
supposed opponent, Nembe City and Giwa FC respectively, could not complete
registration before deadline and as a result were disqualified from taking part
in the league.

were involved in continental assignments and will now play their premier league
opening games on Thursday.

Akwa United 1-0 Gombe United
