2023/2024 NNL Match Day 15: Nasarawa United maintain seamless home run

Posted : 22 April 2024

The Solid Miners further boosted their quest for a swift return to the Nigeria Premier Football League on Saturday afternoon following an emphatic 2-0 Conference C win over visiting EFCC FC in matchday 15 of the 2023/24 Nigeria National League, decided at the Lafia City Stadium.

Mid-season purchase, Terdoo Shimaga, netted a brace in the 10th and 34th minutes respectively before the break to ensure United would require only one point to officially guarantee a play-off spot, with their away game against Zamfara United in Sokoto on Saturday, April 27, 2024, being the determinant.

Attacker Shimaga was voted Man-of-the-Match in the game versus EFCC as the Lafia-based side climaxed their home fixtures winning all eight games.

He now has three goals from three matches.

Saturday's victory extended the Solid Miners' lead over Wikki Tourists FC of Bauchi to six points, even as the Bauchi-based side would give their all in their game against boundary neighbors, Mighty Jets International FC, who lost their last home game to Nasarawa United, 1-2, with Shimaga also on the scoresheet for the Lafia-based side.

El-Kanemi Warriors' slim win over hosts Yobe Desert Stars in the other Conference C game ensured the Maiduguri-based team are the first side to qualify for the Super Eight after ending the season with 34 points.

Coach Adams Usman (NAS): "Alhamdullilah for today's victory.

"Winning, by whatever margin, was what we needed today, and we got it, even though it's not how we wanted the goals to be.

"We struck the upright and woodwork on a couple of occasions, but we are still grateful for the outcome at the end of the day.

"I commend my players for taking the chances that led to the two goals.

"Going forward, the permutations are still ongoing as we go into our last game of the Conference on the road in Sokoto a week from now. We have the advantage to top the Group as we look forward to picking an outright win against Zamfara United.

"I wish to reiterate that our supporters and fans should still keep hope alive as qualification for the playoffs is very much not a bygone."
