Nasarawa United FC have defeated league leaders, Lobi Stars Of Makurdi 2-1 in the much heated match day 13 game played at the Lafia City Stadium .

The goals started with  a Lobi Penalty kick  in the 6th minute (Austin Oguye)  to edge them forward, with United replying  on the 20th minute (Najeem Oluokun) and moving ahead in the 33th (Nwani Williams ).

Nasarawa United succeeded in bringing to a halt  the winning streak of the Makurdi  visitors and stopping the widening of the gap. United’s 11th with 16 points while Lobi Stars 1st with 23 points.

Many believe this could be the turning point for the Nasarawa Squad that has only had five wins and a draw from 13 games played so far this season.

With their next game against Heartland at Owerri who are currently 18th on the table on the 25th,   fans hope Nasarawa have kick-started their now usual late rise to the top of the table and  hopefully a continental ticket.
