NPFL: Shooting Stars hold MFM as Plateau remain top spot + other results

Elsewhere, El Kanemi Warriors and Sunshine Stars needed late winners to stop Katsina United and Kano Pillars respectively, as Akwa United remained the only team yet to win this season

Abayomi Adebayo grabbed a late penalty to rescue point for Shooting Stars Sports Club in Ibadan against Mountain of Fire Miracles Ministries FC in a Nigeria Professional Football League match on Wednesday.
Striker Sikiru Olatunbosun shot the visitors into the lead late in the first half.
Elsewhere, El Kanemi Warriors and Sunshine Stars needed late winners to stop Katsina United and Kano Pillars respectively, as Akwa United remained the only team yet to win this season.
Visiting Katsina United looked like they will be the first team to pick a draw at El Kanemi, who have been unbeaten in Maiduguri in 14 matches, before substitute Anthony Sunday’s spectacular back-breaking winner in the 89th minute.
And in Akure, an 82nd penalty converted by Sikiru Alimi ensured home team Sunshine Stars edged past Kano Pillars.
Akwa United languish at the bottom of the NPFL standings after they were held for the second time this season at home, this time by champions, Rangers.
Unlike the previous match day when all 10 teams won, Gombe United, Abia Warriors and FC Ifeanyiubah all had to settle for a share of the points in front of their own fans.
Plateau United remained on top of the standings with 10 points from four matches, two points clear of closest rivals, Rivers United.
