City Of David grab first win



City Of David (COD) United grabbed their first full points of the Nigeria National League (NNL) season by beating Abia Warriors by a goal in Lagos.

But the Lagos-based club had to endure a torrid spell in the last 35 minutes of the game as they were put on the back foot at the Agege Stadium with ten men after centre-back, Buchi Ogwu, got a straight red card for professional foul.

COD United's winning goal came on the half hour mark through right-back, Felix Adeworishe, who scored directly from a corner kick.

Head coach of COD United, Olabode Awakan, expressed happiness with his side's win but called the officiating into question.

"It's good we won to take the maximum points. The officiating here (at the Agege Stadium) was poor. Some of the calls by the referee were questionable," said Awakan.

On Matchday 1, COD United opened their campaign with a 0-1 loss at Crown FC.

In Jos, Ibrahim Hassan's double was enough to propel Mighty Jets to a two-nil win over DSS.

Bolowotan FC were close to an away win at the Samson Siasia Stadium in Yenagoa with minutes left to regulation time before Divine Warriors (formerly Ocean Boys) squared at 2-2 through Gift Ibibor.
