Akwa United defeats Sunshine Stars

Akwa United took another step towards Premier League survival after a well-deserved 2-1 win yesterday over Sunshine Stars at the Nest of Champions in Uyo.

The Promise Keepers were quick off the blocks and went ahead in the 7th minute courtesy of a glancing header by the impressive Friday Ubong, while Sunshine equalized with Dele Olorundare’s free kick deflected off one of his teammates and into the net on 15 minutes. United however claimed the full marks after Aniekan Ekpe converted a penalty six minutes into the second half.

Victory takes Akwa United to 43 points, leapfrogging El-Kanemi Warriors in the process as they further steer clear of relegation waters.
