Akwa Utd FC returns to trouble waters with another pulsating draw

Posted : 04 December 2023

The 2020/2021 winners of the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) have once again found themselves in troubled relegation waters after a thrilling 1-1 draw against visiting Kwara United FC in the 2023/2024 NPFL Match Day 11 fixtures.

The Fatai Osho-led side has been at the lowest ebb in the last six years of campaigning in the top flight of Nigerian football. They have only managed to secure two wins, five draws, and four losses in the current campaign, languishing in the 17th position out of the 20-club league race with just 11 points.

In fact, Akwa United has recorded only one win in the last five league matches played, which was the Match Day 9 victory over Remo Stars. Many had hoped this would be a springboard to more resounding victories, yet the Fatai Osho side could not sustain the tempo.

Therefore, it was Kwara United that achieved the surprise result of the day with a 1-1 draw against the Promise Keepers at the Eket Stadium.

Uche Collins put his side ahead in the 43rd minute from the penalty spot, but the Afonja Warriors equalized 2 minutes later through Sadiq Yusuf.

The Promise Keepers had another opportunity to secure the win, but Collins missed the second penalty given to the club toward the end of the game.

Kwara United FC now occupies the 9th position with 14 points, having three wins, five draws, and three losses.
