Home teams again dominated today in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) save for champions Enugu Rangers, whose struggles were worsened after they could only force visiting Nasarawa United to a 1-1 draw.

Last weekend, all 10 clubs won at home.
Today, Rangers could only salvage a draw at home courtesy of an 80 minute equaliser by Godwin Aguda after took a shock lead in the 75 minute through Thomas Zenke.

It was most certainly not the result the home fans desired as they protested against caretaker coach Chukwuma Agbo after the game, while demanding for a proven handler to be appointed.
Otherwise, eight other home teams won in front of their fans.

Enyimba felled league leaders Plateau United 1-0 in Calabar, while Katsina United brought down to earth Abia Warriors, 4-0 winners over Rangers last week, thanks to a first half penalty goal by skipper Nasiru Sani.

It was Sani’s third goal from the penalty spot.
Relegation-troubled Wikki Tourists, Shooting Stars and Remo Stars all won at home to boost their survival hopes.
