Ajako netted the only goal for the Promise Keepers with a first-half cracker.

Wisdom Fernando told Lodgexpress official website: “I was just about joining the wall, trying to block the view of Itodo when I decided to wait and next I saw the ball fly in the top corner. It was a fantastic free-kick, probably the best one he’s scored. It was nice to see it fly in.

“He practices an awful lot and obviously the more you do that, the better you’ll get. A few free-kicks have flown in for us this season and I don’t think that’s down to luck. We all know the ability he’s got from set-pieces . Hopefully he can keep that going for the rest of the season and score a few more.”

Promise Keepers defender Wisdom Ndon added: “It was unbelievable. I think it was the best goal I’ve seen in a game I have played in.”

David Boluwaji also gave Ajako’s 30th-minute strike top billing, telling Lodgexpress media: “That must be the best free-kick in the NPFL this season.

“It was a marvellous hit. It was within two inches of the junction of the crossbar and the post. No goalkeeper in the world could possibly save it.”
