NNL derbies end in stalemate



Two derbies in the Nigeria National League (NNL) that took place in Jos and Lagos ended in draws on Saturday.

The Jos derby between Mighty Jets and Plateau United ended goalless at the Rwang Pam Stadium.

And the southwest derby between Bolowotan FC and Remo Stars ended in a 1-1 draw at the Agege Stadium in Lagos.

The Matchday 6 game between Mighty Jets and Plateau United was a clash between the top two teams in the NNL Group A log this term.

Plateau United manager, Christopher Danjuma surprisingly left out his top scorer so far this term, Daddy Maurice.

Maurice watched from the bench for the duration of the game as his team fired blanks with city rivals, Mighty Jets.

But Mighty Jets' head coach, Ishaya Jatau included his team's leading scorer, Justice Fan from the start though later substituted him.

Plateau United thought they had secured a lead with 18 minutes to the end of the game when Ibe Johnson nodded away from a free-kick but the referee ruled it out.

Maurice told supersport.com after the game: "I'm happy my teammates got a point off Jets who were playing as the home team. It's always a difficult game against them and though I didn't play in the game I'm glad with the performance of my teammates."

In the southwest derby, hosts Bolowotan FC took the lead inside 25 minutes through Othuke Jacob.

Samson Paul's well-taken free-kick beat Bolowotan goalkeeper, Timi Adeyoriju for Remo Stars to earn their first away point of the campaign.
