The Nigerians left it late to earn a hard-fought victory against the Malians in Sunday’s make or break clash

Enyimba secured a 1-0 victory over Djoliba to boost their chances of progressing to the Caf Confederation Cup knockout phase.

Farouk Mohammed’s late minute penalty handed the two-time African champions the maximum points in Bamako.

The People’s Elephants went into Modibo Keita Stadium in dire need of victory – and  a defeat would have been a massive setback as CARA Brazzaville and Williamsville AC occupied the first two positions.

Coach Usman Abdallah has goalkeeper Theophilus to thank as he made crucial saves to deny the hosts from wreaking havoc.

With this victory, Enyimba move to second in the log – and will need a win against CARA Brazzaville to finish as Group C winners.
