LAGOS, (CAJ News) – SUNSHINE Stars have shot to the top of the Glo Premier League after defeating Giwa 4-0 on Sunday.
The Sunshine men now leads the 20-team league log with 43 points from 23 matches while former leaders Enyimba are on 42 with the same number of games played to date.
Enyimba did themselves a disservice when held to a 1-1 draw by relegation-threatened Bayelsa United at Oghara on Saturday.
It was Prince Aggreh, who powered the Sunshine Stars to the top of the log with a hat-trick while Stephen Eze scored the other goal for the Akure Gunners, as Sunshine Stars are affectionately called.
Elsewhere across the country on Sunday, Akwa United thrashed Sharks 3-1 as Kano Pillars dismantled Shooting Stars 4-1 at the Sani Abacha Stadium in Kano.
In other matches, Kwara United lost 0 – 1 to Wikki Tourists, Lobi Stars beat FC Taraba 2 – 1, Nasarawa United also posted a 2 – 0 victory over Heartland while Rangers narrowly lost 2 – 3 to FC Ifeanyiubah.
Warri Wolves moved to the third position of the league with a 1-0 victory over Dolphins in an otherwise evenly- balanced match played on Sunday.
