Wolves back in league contention with crushing victory

23 October 2014, 09:03 Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Warri Wolves have secured a sound victory against Crown FC following a 7-1 crushing of their opponent at the Warri City Stadium.

Stanley Dimgba gave Wolves an early lead at the far post, and Gbolahan Salami added the second in the 10th minute of play.

Salami was not done as he netted his 16th goal of the season after 14 minutes in Warri.

His efforts from open play were the centre-piece of an emphatic Wolves victory as they ran riot with goal-laden attacking display.

Nnedum Francis scored what later turned to be a face saving goal for the Ajilete Valiants.

Crown crumbled and Wolves piled on the agony courtesy of last season's top scorer Oghenekaro Etebo and wonder-goal king, Freedom Omofoman, as the first half ended 5-1 in favour of the Seasiders.

Super Sand Eagles forward Abu Azeez made it six when he shot low past the goalkeeper.

Ifeanyi Ede rounded off the rout with his first goal in the 80th minute, turning home his effort inside the area as Crown gave every impression of a side who simply could not wait for the final whistle to sound.

Second-placed Wolves remain one point behind leaders Kano Pillars, who won 2-1 at home to Kaduna United.
