FC Ifeanyi Ubah continued their ascendency to the top of the Nigeria premier league table with a 1- 0 win over Heartland of Owerri yesterday in Nnewi.
The goal was scored in the 4th minute of first half by William Dasilva who converted a spot kick.
The Brazilian import was brought down in the box by a Heartland defender during a goal mouth scramble.
The two sides demonstrated physical and tactical play to the admiration of capacity crowd that was at the Ifeanyi Ubah stadium, Nnewi.
Efforts by the hosts to increase the tally were frustrated by the visitors as the first half ended on that note.
What would have been the second goal for the home side from an intelligently taken free kick by Adeleye Olamilekan in the 77th minute hit the bar.
The win has catapulted the Anambra Warrior a step forward to the pinnacle of the NPL table.
Enugu Rangers fell 3-1 at Lobi Stars while Niger Tornadoes also made the most of home advantage to beat Shooting Stars 2-1 in Lokoja.
