Enyimba Climb Out Of Relegation Zone With First NPFL Win

Former champions Enyimba have climbed out of the relegation zone in the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) after they recorded their first win of the season at the U.J. Esuene Stadium in Calabar on Thursday evening.

The Aba Elephants defeated their visitors Nasarawa United by a lone goal courtesy of a 79th minute strike from the left foot of diminutive winger Stanley Dimgba.

The first league victory of the season was very important and it was enough to lift Paul Aigbogun’s side five places up the table from the bottom to 15th position while Nasarawa United drop deeper into the relegation zone from 17th to 19th spot.
