▶Adamawa Utd 0-0 Wikki
Coach Usman Abdullahi first match ended draw away from home.

The goaless encounter was played with the former Enyimba FC gaffer trying to blend with Bauchi life.

It was though a probably fair result for the home side who are still struggling at the bottom of the table.

▶Kwara United showed class in Uyo

Akwa Utd 0-2 Kwara Utd
Kwara United once again showed class as they convincingly defeated Akwa United by 2 goals to nothing away from home.

The Harmony Boys showed another level of commitment rising with Alao Danbani’s brace earning the Coach Biffo led side the three maximum points.

It was however another alerting results coming from the Kwara State sponsored side in the bid to justify their infamous entry into the league.

▶Sunshine coast Plateau United back again

Sunshine Stars 2-1 Plateau Utd
Timileyin Ogunniyi and Fuad Ekelojuoti brilliant display delivered yet another three points for the Owena Whales as Uche Onwuasoanya strike for Plateau United in the 57th minute failed to inspire the Jos side to at least a point away from home.

It is another blow on the face of Plateau United as they continue to apparently losing their foothold on the log which they occupied till MatchDay 14 before Lobi Stars took over.

▶Heartland tames People’s Elephant in Aba

Enyimba 0-2 Heartland
Coach Fidelis Ilechukwu side has sent Enyimba back to the drawing board in their quest to create a safe haven for themselves in the NPFL.

A big blow to the Aba Elephants under the recovery situation of the team under the acting Chief Coach, Fatai Osho.

The 2 nil victory over the 2 times CAF Champion League winners is coming after their last weekend’s four-star showing over Mauritania’s

in the group stage games of the CAF Confederation Cup.

▶Rangers finding rythm back
Wolves 1-2 Rangers

One of the relatively best moments in the season.
The victory over Warri Wolves is expected to spur them back to achieve another strong base in the NPFL as they are currently trading tackles at the CAF Championship.

▶Olukoya Boys with another impressive run

MFM 2-1 Jigawa Golden Stars
The encounter at the Soccer Temple had the Olukoya Boys securing another 3 points from one of the fixtures of MatchDay 15 .

▶Abia Warriors claim bragging rights against FCIU in Oriental Derby

Abia Warriors 2- 1 FC Ifeanyi Ubah
Abia Warriors on thier home ground produced another victory to aid their repute in the NPFL business.

Closely contested though,Yakub Hammed struck in the 75th minutes to give the home team thier much needed victory after Jimoh Gbadamosi penalty equalizer in the 55th minute cancelled the early lead of the home side through Lukman Bello classy effort.

▶Katsina United holds ground at home

Katsina Utd 1- 1 Kano Pillars
Many thanks to Tasiu Lawal strike in the twilight of the first half, changing the scoreline after Seun Adelani goal for the visiting Sai Masu Gida in the 34th.

Katsina United who lost to Kwara United on MatchDay 14 were able to hold the ground against the mastery of the Kano contingent .

By extension, one can deduce that Tasiu Lawal service was greatly missed in Ilorin when his side lost gallantly to the Harmony Boys last weekend.
With the goal, the former Niger Tornadoes striker have shown his importance to the team and of course a force to reckon with in the league generally.
He now has 6 league goals to his name.

▶Rivers United edge Lobi Stars

Rivers Utd 2-1 Lobi Stars
The league table topper, Lobi Stars have been defeated by the Pride of Rivers in Port Harcourt.

Definitely one of the cracker of MatchDay 15, as Malachi Ohawume’s goal in the 75th minutes earned the Coach Stanley Eguma side another credibility of their status in the league.
