Enugu Rangers are back on the top of the Nigeria league table after they defeated Nasarawa United 2-1 in a Friday Night game watched by a capacity crowd at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium in Enugu.
Rangers now have 24 points from 12 matches, two points ahead of FC IfeanyiUbah.
Striker Bobby Clement, fresh from a three-match ban after his dismissal in the Oriental Derby against Enyimba, headed Rangers ahead after 23 minutes, when he powered his header home off a corner.
The visiting Nasarawa had their chances in the first half and Rangers Togolese defender Azeez Camara had to head away an effort off the goalline.
The Lafia club pulled a goal back in the 75th minute, when Seun Sogbeso tucked away a penalty after an infringement by Camara inside the Rangers goal area.
