Nasarawa United last yesterday evening returned to the top of the 2016 Super 4 after striker Tayo Fabiyi smashed a late match winner against Enyimba at the imposing Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo.

Nasarawa now have eight points from five matches, while Enyimba are on seven points.

After both teams lost sitters in the first half, the Lafia ‘Solid Miners’ went in front after 61 minutes from the penalty spot through Seun Sogbesan after Enyimba defender Ifeanyi Anaemena was sent off for fouling a goal-bound Fabiyi.

However, Enyimba drew level three minutes later through Christian Pyagbara, who made up for his big miss in the first half, when he stabbed home from a cross from the right.

And with seconds left on the clock Nasarawa regained the lead when Fabiyi finished off a move from inside the box.

In the second match of the day, Akwa United and Warri Wolves parted goalless.

The final match day will see Warri Wolves battle Nasarawa United by 5pm, while the late night show will provide the platform for the champions to be crowned as Akwa United square up against Enyimba.

The first round of the Super Four held in Kaduna on January 20 and 24 saw Nasarawa United finishing top of the log after amassing five points from three games, while Enyimba occupied the second spot after scrambling a 2-0 win against Warri Wolves on the final day.
