Since taking over from Abdulazeez Mohammed as first-team coach, the Harmony Boys have failed to lose a league game.
Kwara United came from behind to secure a shock 2-1 victory over El Kanemi Warriors in their Week 9 2023 Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) fixture on Wednesday.
It became the second win for the Ilorin club this season, following a difficult start that had seen them previously manage just a win, four defeats and three draws.
El Kanemi start brightly in Maiduguri
The Harmony Boys headed to the El Kanemi Stadium in Maiduguri, on a back of a draw in their previous match and were hoping to build on the performance.
Their chance immediately began to look bleak early in the game as David Nnaji gave the hosts a deserved lead in the 20th minute.
El Kanemi continued to press their visitors in search of a second but were unlucky in their quest as the minutes wound by.
Kwara United come from behind to win
A return from the break then saw the visitors take charge of the game and turn things on its head. In a space of eleven minutes, Kwara United found a breakthrough via Jide Fatokun who scored a minute past the hour mark, before Godwin Osagbemi made it two later on.
Dogo then pulled a couple of substitutions, changing the pattern of the game to ensure his side protected their lead at all costs. And so they did, securing a 2-1 victory at full-time.
With the win, Kwara United now exit the relegation places in Group A to go 8th while El Kanemi on their part, remain rooted to the bottom of the group after having only managed a win and two draws in nine matches.
