Rangers Compound Heartland Woes , Now Topping NPFL Table

Rangers International of Enugu are now at the summit of Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) with 13 points, after their 2-0 win in week seven encounter against rivals Heartland of Owerri played on Sunday 

A goal in each half of the oriental derby from Kazeem Ogunleye and Kenneth Igboke further compounded the woes of the Naze Millionaire who are languishing at the bottom of the table

In Ibadan, Shooting Stars maintained their 100percent home win after thrashing Niger Tornadoes of Minna 4-1 with Ayobami Adekunle, Ayodeji Bamidele, Adelowo Gbolagade and Kareem Ayinde scoring in the five goals thriller

The Oluyole Warriors are now second on the table with the same number of points with Rangers 

Remo Stars of Ikenne-Remo are still within the top three positions in the Nigeria's top flight league with 12points, despite losing by a lone-goal in a controversial manner to homeside, Bendel Insurance of Benin at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium

Sarki Ismail's goal in the first half was enough to secure the maximum three points for the Benin Arsenal after Jide Fatokun's thunder strike in the 85th equalizer was controversially disallowed

Abia Warriors are in the fourth position, after securing 2-1 hard-earned win against visiting Katsina United, courtesy of brace from Ibrahim Dehinde as Falolu Azeez only reduced the tally in the 86th minute 

Enyimba International of Aba managed a lone-goal win against visiting Kwara United of Ilorin , with Chijioke Mbaoma scoring the only goal from the penalty spot in the 45th minute

At Eket Stadium Akwa United continued with their unimpressive results at home, failing to score a goal, as they settled for a goal less draw with visiting Plateau United of Jos 

Rivers United of Port Harcourt forced their visitors Sunshine Stars of Akure to a one-all draw, after Alex Oyowah's late goal cancelled out Duke Osimaga's strike in the 52nd minute for the Akure Gunners 

Doma United however recorded the second away win in the season , with a massive 3-0 win against homeside Gombe United in a Savannah derby at Patanmi Stadium in Gombe
