Samson Obi fired Enyimba FC to victory against Sunshine Stars in Matchday 17 of the Nigeria Professional Football League(NPFL) at the Agege Stadium.
Enyimba headed to the game on the back of their 2-1 loss to Orlando Pirates at the FNB Stadium in Matchday 2 of the CAF Confederation Cup.
Sunshine Stars were barnished to Lagos by the League Management Company (LMC) for breaching the NPFL framework.
Sunshine Stars were in control of the game and the best chance of the game fell to Sadeeq Yusuf.
The forward found himself in a one on one situation with Enyimba goalkeeper John Noble but lacked the confidence to bury the ball in the 42nd minute.
Both teams went into the dressing room with nothing separating them.
The second half resumed with both side sizing themselves as Enyimba began to press higher for the opener.
Sunshine Stars shot themselves in the arm after failing to clear a long ball from Noble as Obi stayed calm to slot the ball past Sunshine goalkeeper in the 52nd minute.
That goal proved to be the only difference as Enyimba moved to 4th on the log with four outstanding games.
