Olatunbosun’s Double Sinks Nasarawa Utd


Sikiru Olatunbosun scored twice as MFM FC eased past a jittery Nasarawa United 2-0 to bring an end to their recent poor run in Agege.

The visitors – who had lost their first game of the season to Fidelis Ilechukwu’s men in Lagos with the intention of avenging their painful defeat but they looked sluggish despite a raft of changes from technical crew.

MFM FC dominated the opening half with their forwards profiting from sloppy Nasarawa United defending.

Isah Akor spurned the opportunity to give the visitors the lead after 15 minutes as his tame effort was saved by goalkeeper Dele Ayeleso.

Five minutes later, Olatunbosun put the Olukoya Boys ahead with a cool finish courtesy of an assist from from Stephen Odey.

And ten minutes later he completed his brace to the dismay of the Solid Miners.

In the second half, Kabiru Dogo’s side tried all they could to restore some pride but all were to no avail as the hosts secured maximum points to move up the NPFL log.
