Dino brush Off Dannaz to jump into second place
Dino made it six wins away from home as they defeated Dannaz in their MatchWeek 18 fixture.

In the second half, Dino continued to cruise, despite all of Dannaz effort. One quickly became two for them as Okiemute Adagharagba found himself in the right place at the right time and double the away side’s lead in the 73rd minute.
For Dannaz, this loss meant that they finished their maiden season with only one home win and one home draw. Dino, on the other hand, boast the best away record in the league, winning six games. It could be seven when they play their outstanding fixture against Iganmu.
