The win no doubt ease pressure on head coach, Abdu Maikaba, who has come under constant criticism following the Flying Antelopes poor display this season.

In Ibadan, Kwara United also ended their barren run following a hard-fought 2-1 win against former champions, Akwa United.

Wasiu Alalade scored the curtain raiser with a ferocious shot from outside the box on 15 minutes.

With four minutes remaining on the clock, Muritala Dagbo netted the winner from a goal mouth scramble.

At the Pillars Stadium, Kano, Bendel Insurance extended their unbeaten start to the season courtesy of a 1-0 win against El-Kanemi Warriors.
