Bayelsa United Win Nigeria Super Cup

The league champions stop FA Cup winners Enyimba 1-0 in a champion of champions match-up.

Bayelsa United put a disappointing home loss to Stade Malien of Mali in the CAF Confederation Cup at the weekend to the back of their mind in order to beat Enyimba 1-0 in the Nigeria Super Cup on Tuesday.

In a match played at the Lokoja Township Stadium, striker Stanley Onwuachi grabbed the winner in the 32nd minute.

Meanwhile, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has decided not to relegate Jimeta FC of Yola from the amateur division one league on compassionate grounds after the club lost 19 of their players in a road accident.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) also rose from their Annual General meeting in Lokoja, northcentral Nigeria, to enter Sharks of Port Harcourt and Niger Tornadoes of Minna in the sub-regional West African Union (WAFU) Cup.
