MFM holds First Bank, Wikki overtakes Jets in Division A
Mountain of Fire and Miracle (MFM) Football Club of Lagos forced city rivals, First Bank to 1-1 draw in an epic encounter played at the magnificent Agege Stadium near Ikeja at the weekend.
It was a match which the host would have wrapped up in the first have but poor marksmanship ensured that both teams shared the spoils even as MFM came from behind to pick a point.
First Bank had scored an early goal no thanks to a defensive mix-up following what MFM defenders taught was an offside play but the referee and his first assistant adjudged it a fair-play and that allowed the First Bank attacker to slot in from the near post.
Meanwhile, Wikki Tourists have returned to the top Division A after a 2-0 victory over Kogi United in Bauchi just as Adamawa and Plateau United have joined Mighty Jets of Jos on 19 points to trail Wikki with only one point more that the three clubs.
