Enyimba 2-1 Plateau United: Players’ Scorecard

John Noble 65%
Noble was never a doubt wasn’t a doubt against Plateau United, as his recent form stood him out among the goalkeepers. He showed good control of his area as his voice could be heard calling at his defenders. Also, he made good saves to deny Jesse Akila and Sunday Anthony in the first half. Yet, the most impressive aspect of his game was his aerial command – how he picked balls in the air.

Stephen Manyo: 68%
Manyo appears to have fully adapted to his new found position at the right back. He made some good tackles at the back and showed some improvements in his crosses.

Emmanuel Ampiah 65%
Still trying to build his tent at the left full back, Ampiah was able to make some fine interceptions from the roaring United strikers. He made some good offensive runs too.

Hassan Abubakar 70%
The astuteness of the unmovable defender was called to bare several times and he stood his ground without wavering. His absence when he was substituted due to injury was felt in the course of the game.

Nabil Yarou 68%
Returning to the lineup, Nabil made some fine coverage for Hassan Abubakar, who was the master charger for Enyimba.

Dare Olatunji 75%
He was ever present at the midfield to checkmate United’s forays at our goal post. He perfectly filled in the gap for Anthony Omaka, who missed out through suspension.

Cyril Olisema 65%
Had a good game and made some offensive runs at the opponents goal area. Made some faulty passes, but wasn’t a bad performance, overall.

Austin Oladapo 70%
The captain showed no sign of rustiness despite missing the last five through injury. He dictated play at the middle and initiated several attacks, including the lead up to the second goal.

Orok Gabriel 60%
As it is characteristic, Orok made key contributions, falling back to pick loose balls and making penetrative runs with them.

Anayo Iwuala 70%
Anayo has caught the eyes of many with his marauding runs at defenders.His trickery is top notch and he capped up a generally good performance by providing the asssits for both goals. Came close to scoring in the second half but his attempt hit the woodwork.

Tosin Omoleye 85%
Omoyele was a thorn in the flesh of Plateau United’s defensive trio of Ibrahim Abubakar, Issah Ndala and Andrew Ikefe. His one-two touches with Anaya Iwuala were exceptional, his deft touches were sparkling. He crowned his efforts with a brace, leaping highest to nod home the first goal before finishing from an Anayo’s pass to register the second. He was clearly the man of the match.
