Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries Football Club of Lagos suffered their first defeat in four Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) matches on Sunday against Warri Wolves Football club of Warri in Delta State.

It was a bad day in the office for the Olukoya Boys at the Warri City Stadium despite dominating the game in the first five minutes.

MFM FC got a free kick three minutes into the encounter, it was taken by Ifeanyi Ifeanyi, but Warri Wolves goalkeeper, Rhogbere Tejiri pushed the ball away for a corner kick.

Warri Wolves only shot at goal in the first half came in the 10th minute of the match after a fine build up play as John Odumegwu effort hit the cross bar.

The Olukoya Boys gave the hosts some moment to worry about following a well taken free kick by former under 20 midfielder, Ifeanyi Ifeanyi ,his shot was parried by Tejiri.

The first 45 minutes ended with both teams going into the dressing room with a goalless draw following a heavy downpour.

Ogbenewo Uzezi 50th minute sublime shot was properly taken care of by  MFM FC stand in goalkeeper, Egbe Ospino who pulled a superb save to deny the hosts their opener.

MFM FC Coach, Fidelis Ilechukwu made his first substitution of the match 10 minutes into the second half as teenage striker, Stephen Odey replaced Festus Ajah.

Both teams didn’t find the game easy as the rain restricted the bounce and movement of the ball thus making it very hard for the players to string passes together.

However, Oghenewo Uzezi put the homers in front with a 71th minute strike that beat MFM FC goalkeeper, Ospino who had a decent performance in between the sticks before he conceded the goal.

Striker Sikiru Olatunbosun was substituted in the 78th minute of the game for Adekunle Adegboyega and Atu Paul Irumekhai for captain Kenedium Nelson.

Kenedium stabilised the midfield while Adekunle troubled Wolves defenders with good runs and dribbles, Odey on the other hand showed some flashes of brilliance in the attack but the Seasiders defenders stood tall to deny the visitors their equaliser.

The fans were thrilled with good display of football from both teams with the match officials doing a yeoman’s job. 

The Lagos-based club now sit in 8th spot on the NPFL log with 16 points from 11 League matches. They will host Wikki Tourists in Match Day 12 coming up this weekend at the Agege Stadium.
