Following their second home loss so far, they sit at the base of the Nigeria top-flight log with two points from six outings.

They travel to the Akure Township Stadium on December 8 for their next outing against Kabiru Dogo’s Sunshine Stars.

At the New Jos Stadium, former champions Plateau United were held to a 0-0 draw by rivals Kano Pillars.

The much talked about encounter failed to produce a goal as both teams produced defensive masterclasses. This result is a setback for Plateau United, who are eyeing another league triumph or at least a return to continental football.

Despite the result, they lead the NPFL table with 14 points from six games, while Sai Masu Gida are 18th with only three points.
