Chisom Okereke, the Enyimba loanee striker, stole the show by scoring the opening goal in the 64th minute and claiming the Man of the Match award sponsored by Nigeria Breweries (NB), Footballrover reports.

This goal was a huge one for Okereke, who had struggled to find his scoring form since joining Bendel Insurance this season.

He had previously scored his first goal for the team in a 1-1 draw against Rivers United in Port Harcourt.
