In a surprising turn of events, Kwara United suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Bayelsa United, with the thrilling match taking place at the Samson Siasia Stadium in Yenagoa on Sunday.
This victory holds special significance for Bayelsa United, as it marked their first win in four games.
Their initial success in the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) occurred last month when they triumphed over Akwa United.
The Prosperity Boys managed to secure a 2-1 victory against the Harmony Boys at their home stadium, Samson Siasia Stadium in Yenagoa.
The hero of the match was Steiner Robert Mizo, a 23-year-old sensation who secured the win with a brilliant brace.

Looking ahead, the coach confessed that this victory will significantly boost the club’s morale as they prepare to face Kano Pillars in the mid-week.
He added, “The win will also boost our morale in the next game against Kano Pillars.”
With this victory, Bayelsa United has climbed to the 11th position on the league table, now with 6 points to their name.
This remarkable win has ignited hope and believe among the team, as they strive for continued success in the NPFL.
