Published on: 17 July 2016

Wikki Tourists Sunday failed to regain leadership of the Nigeria league after they forced hosts Niger Tornadoes to a 1-1 draw in Lokoja.

Wikki will now be second on the table having recorded 44 points from 26 matches, two points behind new leaders Enugu Rangers.

Rivers United stayed in third place also on 44 points, but with an inferior goals difference to Wikki.

Tornadoes opened scoring against Wikki through Kunle Issa after 21 minutes. Charles Henlong equalized for Wikki in the 64th minute from close range.

Rivers United were truly at home in Port Harcourt when they defeated Shooting Stars 2-0 only days after they eliminated the Ibadan club from the Federation Cup after penalties.

Rivers goals were by Ivorian striker Guy Kuemian and Frederick Obomate.
