Dannaz FC 1 - 2 Sporting Lagos FC
Sporting Lagos hold off Resilient Dannaz to Claim Hard-fought Win
Two of the most in-form TCC League sides went head-to-head this weekend, with Sporting Lagos coming out on top.
The game started with both sides threatening to take the lead in the early minutes of the fixture. Sporting would however get the breakthrough goal as Dimeji Salvador got the opening goal in the 35th minute. The visitors, seeking to close the gap between themselves and Beyond Limits, pressed for a second before half-time.
But it wasn’t meant to be as Sporting took a slender lead into the break.
The 2nd half resumed the same way the first ended. Both sides tried to get the better of the other but without success. Just after the 60th minute mark, one became two for Sporting Lagos as Sanni Abubakar put his name on the scoresheet to double the visitors’ lead.
All the pressure Dannaz piled on mid-way into the half paid off as Emmanuel Precious found space to slot home the ball and draw his side level. They would however succumb to another home defeat as Sporting Lagos staved off all their attacking threats to register a win.
