Samad Kadiri scored twice as Lobi Stars trash FC Ifeanyi Ubah to begin their NPFL Super Six Championship Playoffs in a flying note.
The Benue pride who qualify for the championship playoff by finishing second in group B were too strong for the Anambra Warriors who are seeking for their first NPFL title.
Samad Kadiri open the scoring few minutes into the game as he rifles home an effort from close range after a deflected Kelly Kester pass puts him through on goal.
FC Ifeanyi Ubah levelled up in the 40th asTega Ebetomame glances home Promise James unmarked free kick from close range as the game in a tie at half time.
Samad Kadiri gets his second of the night as his strike partner Sikiru Alimi heads a delightful pass into his path, with his first attempt came off the foot of the post as he was alert enough to fire home the rebound to restore Lobi Stars lead on resumption of the second half.
Few minutes later Sikiru Alimi nets a brilliantly executed overhead kick from 16 yards to extend his side’s lead over a lackluster FC Ifeanyi Ubah side.
The Anambra Warriors will face Akwa United on Tuesday while the pride of Benue will be against the flying Antelopes on Tuesday.
