Sporting Lagos continued their brilliant run in the Naija Super 8 Preseason tournament after doing Remo Stars a favour against Katsina United.

With three teams still with a chance of making it into the final four, Remo Stars lived on the edge as Sporting and Changi Boys needed a draw to send them home.
