North-central Derby: Nasarawa United Miss Chance To Advance On League Table

The Solid Miners had everything working for them from the blast of the whistle on blockbuster Sunday’s North-Central Derby clash against border neighbours, Lobi Stars FC, at the Aper Aku Stadium, Makurdi, Benue State, but failed to take advantage of the avalanche of chances that came their way in the first forty-five minutes.

Sunday Okereke manoeuvred his way through the tight defence before releasing a blistering shot which nearly skipped the grasp of goalkeeper, Aliko Mustapha, in goal for Lobi Stars in the sixth minute.

Lobi immediately responded through Chukwuka Onuoha but his shot got blocked by the stiff United’s back line.

Sa’id Mubarak caused some scare for the visitors with two consecutive attempts on goal which forced United to quickly restrategise as they headed toward the Lobi danger territory – Ini Edem outran his marker before sending in a diagonal cross into the path of Ohanachom only for the home side’s goalke
