Dolphins nip Wolves

Former Nigeria Premier League (NPL) champions, Dolphins on Friday defeated Warri Wolves 1-0 as part of their pre-season preparations for the 2012/13 season.

Abduljeleel Ajagun’s effort midway through the first half gave the Port Harcourt club the win against the Warri-based outfit.

The game was played in front of a sparse crowd at the Gabros stadium, Nnewi.

Manager of Dolphins FC, Stanley Eguma said the victory was "heartwarming against a very good opponent."

“It was a difficult victory against a very good opponent. Wolves are quite strong with the kind of players they have recruited and I was impressed with their play today (Friday),” Eguma told supersport.com.

Dolphins had played out a 2-2 draw in another tune-up game against lower league side, Gabros on Wednesday.

The three-time NPL kings will face current Federation Cup champions, Heartland on Sunday in another tune-up game.
