Bendel Insurance’s honeymoon with three draws in the Nigerian Professional League ended on Wednesday, as the team were pipped 1-0 by Wikki Tourists of Bauchi, in their fourth game of the season.
The solitary strike came in the 51st minute, through Suleiman Mohammed after both sides have played even for the better part of the game. The Benin Arsenal will now be hoping to bounce back when they play their next home game in Benin City on Saturday.
Rangers International of Enugu also got maximum points when they faced under pressure Niger Tornadoes of Minna at the Football Cathedral, Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu. Bright Silas was the scorer of the only goal in the 33rd minute to ensure that Rangers amassed six points in their last two home games after defeating Enyimba of Aba by the same margin last Sunday.
In Port Harcourt, Rivers United pipped Remo Stars of Shagamu 1-0, to get all the three points at stake.
