Matchday 10 of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) saw a total of 19 goals scored with Shooting Stars 4-0 win being the biggest win margin.

Plateau United earned their first win on the road this season and it was away at Rangers International courtesy of Buhari Ibrahim who nodded into an empty net after Rangers goalie Bamidele Adeniyi misjudged the flight of the ball from a long throw-in by Daniel Itodo.

Rivers United continued their great run of form with Dakkada being their latest victim in a 2-1 home win. Hosts Rivers United zoomed into the lead three minutes past the half-hour mark from a goal worked by two Npfl topscorers. Ishaq Rafiu managed to beat his marker inside the box after a through ball was sent by Chijioke Akuneto. 

Emmanuel Ayaosi pulled Dakkada level at the stroke of halftime from a brilliant solo effort but a minute past the hour mark, Ishaq Rafiu silenced the visitors from the spot to register his ninth goal of the season.

Enyimba were denied a point as Shamassu Mohammed’s added time goal handed Nasarawa United a 2-1 win at the Lafia City Stadium.

The People’s Elephant had stepped into the lead when Victor Mbaoma scored his first league goal this term, but Tolulope Oluwole’s leveller and Mohammed’s last minute finish completed a late comeback for the hosts.

The best view was found in Ibadan inside the 12,000 capacity Lekan Salami Stadium where Shooting Stars Sports Club went goal crazy as they put four unreplied goals past hapless Heartland.

After a goalless first half, Daniel Kolawole put the hosts ahead and his lead was doubled by Taofeeq Malomo 13 minutes from time. Ayo Adejubu added a third with five minutes left to play while Nafiu Raheem nailed the coffin at death.
