Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries FC defeated Bendel Insurance of Benin 2-0 in one of the fixtures of Matchday 11 of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) to maintain their perfect home record courtesy of goals from Abisoye Olawale and Michael Ohanu.

The Olukoya Boys started the encounter poorly and failed to make good use of the ball to their advantage although they were able to keep the visitors who were not too impressive at bay for the larger part of the exchange.


MFM took the lead in the 40th minute of match through defender, Abisoye Olawale’s header off a cross from Jonathan Zikiye and got the second goal after 13 minutes of play in the second half when Ohanu rose highest in the box to nod home a cross from a well-taken free kick by Zikiye.


Ohanu disclosed in an interview to MFM FC Media after his team’s sixth home win of the season that he is not excited because his team played poorly but promised a better outing in MFM FC’s subsequent league games.
“Honestly, I am not really happy because we didn’t play the way we wanted to play. The first half was not good but I think we played better in the second half.


“You know sometimes in football things don’t usually go as expected but at the same time we thank God for the three points which is more important and I believe we get better in our subsequent league matches,” he stated.


MFM are still sitting comfortably on the Group A table of the NPFL with 21 points from ten league games.
