Atuloma Rescues Rivers Utd with Narrow Win


Rivers United bounced back from last week’s defeat to secure a narrow win Wednesday against Morocco FUS Rabat 1-0 in a CAF Confederation Cup match at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium in Port Harcourt.

The result now ensured that all four teams in Group A of the competition tied on three points after Match-day 2, with KCCA having beaten Club African on Tuesday.

Nigeria’s United claimed the narrow victory thanks to a second-half strike from Emeka Atuloma, seeing them bounce back from a 3-1 loss to Club Africain earlier in the month.

Rabat came into the game confident of claiming a second win following their defeat of KCCA on Match-day 1, but the North Africans were unable to get the better of their hosts.

The teams will be in Confederation Cup action again on the first weekend of June. FUS will host Africain in Rabat for a regional derby, while KCCA will welcome Rivers United to Kampala.
