Coach Manu Garba-tutored lads were the better side and even dictated the pace of the game. Enyimba’s undoing was having their players not willing to resume to camp on time due to last season’s unpaid wages.
Enyimba will face Warri Wolves today as the two teams will be out to record their first win of the tournament while Flying Eagles will be hoping to extend their lead with a tough tie against Kano Pillars also today.
Sai Masugida kicked off the Super Four with a mission statement to prove critics wrong as they overpowered Dolphins 2-0 in the first game of the competition.
The Port Harcourt-based side had issues with assembling their players on time for the tournament with their old players too insisting on getting their pay for last season but they had a rethink and travelled with the team for a brief camping in the outskirt of Port Harcourt.
Pillars scored two quick fire goals inside the opening ten minutes through two of their newly acquired players, Samuel Tswanya and Christian Obiozor, and the tie ended that way despite the attacking forays of Dolphins in the second half.
Pillars will have their hands full today when they face the rampaging Flying Eagles while Dolphins will hope to seek a facelift against the U-23 the same day.
Decimated national U-23 side still managed to record their first win of the Super 6 after they piped Warri Wolves 2-1 in the third match of the day at the Abuja National Stadium.
The Seasiders tried all the tricks in their armoury but they were unable to match the flair of the national U-23 team. Augustine Amutu went ahead to hurt the club that pays his wages when he netted the opener for the Dream Team in the third minute but Gift Atulewa evened the tie in the 49th minute before the back breaker from Baker Ebiabowei in the 52nd minute restored the lead of the U-23 national team.
Wolves will however seek redemption today when they clash against Enyimba while Dream Team V1 will tackle Dolphins hoping to extend their impressive start.
