Mustapha spares Enyimba blushes against MFM
Ibrahim Mustapha struck late on to salvage a point for Enyimba at the U.J. Esuene stadium in Calabar after the away team looked set to notch a famous win against their storied opponents following Stephen Odey’s first-half goal.
Last time these teams met, then champions Enyimba were having a torrid season after a group stage exit in the champions league while MFM were in a dogfight at the bottom of the table scrapping to avoid relegation although the scoreline was the same (Enyimba 1-1 MFM) the story is very different now.
Into their second season in the top-flight MFM are indeed flying high and could have climbed t0 second if they had held on to Stephen Odey’s 25th-minute strike and his eighth of the season. Enyimba, on the other hand, are in a rut winning just one of their last 5 matches (1W, 1D, 3L).
