Dakkada football club scored twice in the second half to beat Jigawa Golden Stars in the matchday 17 of the Nigeria professional football league game played at the Nest of Champions in Uyo on Saturday.
The win is first to put an end to Dakkada’s poor results in the last few weeks including 3-0 home loss to Nasarawa United a week ago.
Both teams struggled to create something meaningful in the opening minutes of the first half with no shot on target recorded by either side.
However, Dakkada changed the scoreline early in the second when Osimaga Duke lashed home from 20 yards two minutes into the half.
Spencer Bassey made secured all the three points 19 minutes from time when he combines with team’s topscorers Isaac George and Femi Ajayi in the buildup to fire past Dami Paul in goal for Jigawa Golden Stars.
Bassey could have secured a brace late on but his deft flick to Edim Efimi’s cross beat Paul Dami but not the goal post as it came off the foot of the crossbar before bouncing to safety.
The victory now takes Dakkada to 4th on the log.
