Player by Player: Enyimba vs FC Ifeanyi Uba

JOHN NOBLE: 6/10 

The ever fit goalKeeper was looking agile and alert until Saidu Adamu broke the deadlock in the 29th minute. Though exposed by his defence line, Noble had a good game overall.

STANLEY OKOROM: 5/10

Stanley was overwhelmed by the visitors incursions, he made some slow runs, especially when he was gifted with a good pass. Signs of fatigue were evident in his play.

DANIEL DARKWAH: 6/10  

The Ghanaian left full back was vibrant at the start of the game, but fizzled out at the heat of the encounter, little wonder he was substituted for goal getter Imo Obot.

ANTHONY OMAKA: 6/10 

Omaka had a torrid time in the course of the game, he was found doing lots of tackles to curtail the rampaging Ubas. His untiring attitude should be commended too. Above average performance though.

TIMOTHY DANLADI: 5/10 

The no nonsense and rugged defender was not in tandem with Abiodun Adebayo, understanding was absolutely lacking with each other struggling to have a rhythm. Maybe the avalanche of matches was a factor. 

ABIODUN ADEBAYO: 5/10 

Abe in this fixture, tried his best to keep Ifeanyi Uba’s Saidu Adamu at bay, but his best wasn’t enough as Saidu’s brace was what his club needed to come out of the Enyimba Stadium with a point.

SADIQ ABUBAKAR: 6/10 

Making a return at the Enyimba Stadium turf after a long injury spell, Sadiq made his usual runs to push the opponents back, but his crosses made no meaningful head go. Above average performance from the left-footed winger.

AUSTIN OLADAPO: 6/10  

Captain fantastic was in for a good game, but the resilient Anambra Warriors could not allow Oladapo express himself fully. They swung on him like bees over honey. He attempted a few passes towards the frontline.

VICTOR MBAOMA: 5/10  

The centre forward was shot of supplies and partnership upfront. He also looked tired and made some sluggish runs – perhaps a result of fatigue.

CYRIL OLISEMA: 5/10 

He started on a good note, but seemed to lose momentum after Ifeanyi Uba’s goal. His deft and aggressive runs were missing in this fixture. Average performance from the utility midfielder.

ANAYO IWUALA: 7/10 

Enyimba’s biggest asset, was undoubtedly the man of the match for putting up a superlative second half performance with good runs to push the opponents back. The ever fit Iwuala’s dribbling skills were evident. Another good game by the trickster.

REUBEN BALA: 6.5/10  

Bala was a delight to see by the Enyimba fans, who hailed him for a return to the Enyimba fold after a lengthy injury lay off. Bala was true to the fans’ cheering, that he opened scores for Enyimba by reducing the deficit in the 78th minute. Good game from the Enyimba returnee. 

PHILIP OZOR: 6.5/10  

Ozor’s introduction was a phenomenon in Enyimba’s comeback. His passes were cute, distributing passes as if dishing out meals. The midfielder had a superb game.

TOSIN OMOLEYE: 6/10

Tosin, who came in for Mbaoma, was fantastic upfront and caused problems with his runs inside the box. 

IMO OBOT: 6.5/10 

The leftback came in for Darkwah and showed some character and business like football. He scored the equalizer that cooled frayed nerves. Good game from him.

DAYO OJO: 6/10

Ojo’s introduction caused a stir at the opponents’ back. Keeper Sharp Uzoigwe of Ifeanyi Uba became frightened with Ojo’s harassing shots on goal that he had to make a quick punch over the bar to save his team.
