Glo Premier League: Enyimba Clinch Champions League Ticket on Final Day

Enyimba defeated champions Kano Pillars on the final match day of the 2013-14 Glo Premier League season to seal their fate for next season’s Caf Champions League competition.

The six-time champions downed Pillars 3-1 in Aba to finish second in the league table with 64 points from 38 matches. They join the ‘Sai Masu Gida’ for the 2014-15 Champions League season- starting with the preliminary rounds- as the two representatives from Nigeria.

Enyimba hitman Mfon Udoh grabbed a brace on Sunday to take his tally to a record-breaking 23 goals; the highest tally by a single player in the 2013-14 season and the most goal by a player since Jude Aneke scored 20 in the 2010-11 season for Kaduna United.

Enyimba are One of the Two Sides to Represent Nigeria in Next Season's Caf Confederations Cup.
