Wikki Tourists Sunday moved into second place on the Nigeria league table after a 3-0 spanking of bottom team Ikorodu United in Bauchi.
Wikki now have 31 points, same as Rivers United, but enjoy a superior goals difference.
They are just a point behind leaders Rangers, pending the final determination of the expulsion of Giwa FC from the league.
The leading scorer in the league Godwin Obaje did not score for Wikki on Sunday, but Saidu Abdullahi got a brace with Hamza Tiya also on target for the home team.
There were also home wins for Warri Wolves and Lobi Stars.
Wolves beat El Kanemi 3-1, while 10-man Lobi pipped Rivers United 1-0.
Lobi defender Solomon Kwambe was sent off after his second booking and Rivers United had the chance to draw level at the stroke of full time but Chinonso Okonkwo blasted wide his penalty.
