Second-place Gbagada, with sights on the summit of their Group A table, played host to third-place Iganmu FC. And it was the Eagles who soared higher than the Lions in this contest as Coach Akinyelu’s men registered their second win of the TCC Cup campaign.
After a quick exchange of chances created in the first 10 minutes of the encounter, Joshua Blessing’s shot missed the target in the 13th minute. It didn’t take long for the Blues to take the lead as Ademola Akibu powered home a cross from Hammed Oyeniyi.
This was the second game in a row where Gbagada would score the first goal of the game. And they looked to extend their lead in the 21st minute through Fagbayi. However, he failed to take advantage of his one-on-one chance against the goalkeeper.
At the other end, Iganmu tried to shake off the deficit after finding themselves with only the keeper to beat. But Man of the Match, Olotu Alaba was very much up to the task, and made a good save. The half would not end without Fagbayi missing yet another goal-scoring chance, this time with a weak shot.
The second half saw multiple substitutions but no goals. As hard as Iganmu FC tried – even hitting the woodwork in the 69th minute – they were handed a second-consecutive loss in their TCC campaign.
