NPFL: Kwara United defeated in Enugu



Kwara United suffered their first defeat in the Nigeria Professional Football League [NPFL] since matchday three on Sunday when they lost 1-0 to Rangers International at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium in Enugu.
Chiamaka Madu gave the home team the lead and only goal of the encounter through a header in the 30th minute and just before the interval, Kwara United nearly equalised but Stephen Jude’s long range effort went out off the crossbar.
Kwara United’s last loss in the league was against Rivers United on January 10 when they were defeated 3-0.
With both Enyimba and Rivers United missing NPFL action because of their continental engagement, Kwara United retained their top spot with 21 points from 11 matches. The Kwara-based team continue to search for their first win away to Rangers in the league.
