Ekene Awazie guided Enyimba Football Club to a 2-1 win over Remo Stars on Wednesday afternoon.
A 49th winner from Awazie gave the People’s Elephants all maximum points after Victor Mbaoma had given the hosts side a lead after 37 minutes. Coming into the second half, Awazie who arrived this season, slotted home to extend the advantage before Remo Stars’ Junior Nduka drew one back from the spot to settle the scoreline at 2-1.
It was Enyimba’s seventh win this season and Awazie’s second goal since arriving from FC Ifeanyi Ubah.
“We played great so I am delighted for the guys,” Awazie who put up a Man of the Match display told Lodgexpress.com. “We did really performed well. Three more points and we’re in top four.
“When you are a bit distanced away from the top two positions sometimes people give up, but we’ve never given up. We know we need to keep going. We have a really important game coming up this weekend in Uyo against Dakkada and we will commence preparation towards it.
“Other teams lost points for the top four today so it was an important win for us against a side that started so well this season.”
