Skipper Emmanuel Makama’s 80th minute free kick goal gave Nasarawa United a home win over Heartland in a Nigeria premier league match on Thursday.
It was only the second win of the season for the team who finished third last term.
The victory took ‘The Solid Miners’ off the basement of the league table as they now have six points from seven matches to suck Ikorodu United to the bottom.
Nasarawa piled on the pressure against Heartland, recording as many as six corners to Heartland’s one in the second half, but the match was eventually decided by that one piece of magic by Makama, whose free kick from outside the box 10 minutes from time beat young goalkeeper Emmanuel Iwu.
