Rivers United Force Scoreless Draw Against Enyimba Champions, Enyimba and Rivers United played out an exciting scoreless draw in the final game of match day 21 of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) on Thursday.

Enyimba almost scored inside the opening 30 seconds as Udoh peeled off Chiwendu Ali on the right before watching in despair as Sunday Rotimi easily picked up his cross with Ifeanyi Anaemena lurking.

United responded with two quick chances with the second on 10 minutes almost resulting in a goal.

The second half matched the first in terms of entertainment value as both sides continued to go all out for the win.

Udoh almost scored in the 48th minute but his effort was too feeble to beat the impressive Rotimi who performed a routine save to keep the score barren.

United had their best chance in the 67th minute as Kuemian struck the cross bar with a fierce half volley with Thomas barely moving a muscle.

Enyimba attacked ceaselessly for the rest of the game with United looking to cause damage on the break but the visitors eventually held out for a famous point as the game finished 0-0.
