NPFL Super 6: Enugu Rangers rally back to hold Kano Pillars

Kano Pillars maintained top spot in the Nigeria Professional Football League Championship play-offs following a 1-1 draw with Enugu Rangers at the Agege Stadium Lagos on Monday.

Kano Pillars top the standings with eight points from four matches.

Rabiu Ali gave Pillars the lead two minutes before hour mark curling home a beautiful free-kick from the edge of the box.

Rangers were reduced to 10-men 17 minutes from time when Tope Olusesi was sent off for a foul on Nyima Nwagua.

Despite their numerical disadvantage, the Flying Antelopes rallied back to earn a share of the spoils.

The Enugu club were awarded a penalty three minutes from time when Ifeanyi Egwin was tripped inside the box by Adeshola David.

The penalty was coolly converted by Godwin Aguda for his second goal of the play-offs.

Pillars maintained the top position and could emerge the overall winner.
