Naija Super 8 entered match day three with newly promoted Katsina United holding their own against CAF Champions League side Remo Stars.

Newly promoted Katsina United proved to be a difficult task for Remo Stars in the Naija Super 8 on Sunday,

Katsina, inspired by centre-back Egbe Manyo, pushed Remo to their limits following a 1-1 draw in the first match of match day three at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena, Onikan.


Both sides were evenly matched, with Manyo denied the hero of the game.

In what was a defensive masterclass from the centre-back, Manyo put in an impressive display at the back after he helped Katsina survive Remo Stars.

The talented defender led the back line with panache as he won five tackles, made three interceptions, two last-man tackles, four aerial duels won and 10 clearances.

However, Remo Stars’ scorer on the day, Fabian Nworie, was named the hero of the day by the fans who voted online.
