Competition for the top three spots in each of the Nigeria Professional Football League’s two groups continues to intensify following the weekend’s fixtures.

There is a three-way tied for third place with Akwa being joined by Plateau United and Enyimba who both enjoyed victories as well over the weekend.

Group B remains tight with Lobi Stars even at the top with Rivers United on thirteen points following their 0-0 draw at Niger Tornadoes.
