There was serious jubilation on Wednesday evening at the Kwara state stadium as Kwara United recorded a 1-0 win over visiting Enyimba in rescheduled Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) match day 2 encounter.
Victory over Enyimba was Kwara United first home win this season in the NPFL having played a 1-1 draw against Akwa United last week in what was a disappointing result.
Kwara United goalkeeper Dele Aiyenugba once again proved himself as one of the best goalies in the country after keeping second clean sheet against his former club where he made his name.
Harmony Boys started the match impressively and it took them only five minutes for Stephen Jude to score after connecting perfectly with a superb pass from Michael Ohanu.
Ohanu almost scored the second goal for Kwara United three minutes later, but his shot was parried away by Enyimba goalie John Noble.
Enyimba mounted serious pressure in the second half looking for all possible ways to restore parity, but they would have the wood work to thank at the death for Gata not to score the second goal for Kwara United after a superb counter attack.
The match eventually ended 1-0 in favour of the Harmony Boys at the Kwara state stadium in Ilorin.
Kwara United coach expressed satisfaction with his wards’ performance against Enyimba claiming that there is room for improvement.
“My players were relaxed against Akwa United in our first home game and that was the reason they faced Enyimba will will full strengths and thanks to God for us to have gotten the three needed points,” Biffo explained.
Kwara United are now occupying ninth position on the NPFL standings and the Harmony Boys will face Ifeanyi Ubah in Ilorin this coming Sunday.
