Kwara United have secured the maximum points against Enyimba FC in the rescheduled Match Day 2 of the ongoing 2020/21 Nigeria Professional Football League.

The game played at the Ilorin Township Stadium saw the home side opening scoring in the 5th minute through Steven Jude.

At the restart of the second half, Kwara United almost made it 2-nil when Ohanu Michael rounded Enyimba goalkeeper, John Noble but watched helplessly as the ball hit the woodwork.

With the defeat staring at their faces, Fatai Osho made some personnel changes to salvage the game and go back to Aba with at least a point.

Despite controlling the game for a large period of the game, the Elephants fell to their second league defeat.
