The pulsating meet inside Abubakar Tafawa Balewa stadium which drew sizeable fans failed to produce any goal in either half after both teams made repeated effort to score.

Apex Boys as Supreme Court FC are fondly known began neatly firing from all cylinders in first half with superb combination of strikers Festus Augustine and Paul Samson nicknamed Drogba coupled with the midfield impact marshaled by Caleb Rugasa.

Several scoring threats came from Wikki Tourist Feeders in the second half who piled lethal pressure I search of goal but superior display by Goal Keeper Uche Iloh who rejoined the team from Plateau United in between the league stanzas.

Uche who was with the Abuja-based team last season told newsmen after the game that his best was yet to come he was already fired up to keep more clean sheet for the rest of the season.

“I think I will give the credit to my teammates for playing as one. Everyone in the team showed commitment. We need to remain focused and fight on till the end,” He added

Team Manager, Cletus Nwaobi assured Fans that the flair which the team was known for is gradually returning.
