Three Nigerian players Jabo Ibehre, David Amoo and Uche Ikpeazu tasted action for Cambridge United in their 3-1 win over Crawley Town at The Cambs Glass Stadium.

The U's led 2-0 at the break thanks to headed goal from Ibehre and a free-kick from George Maris, but the visitors reduced the deficit three minutes into the second half when Josh Payne converted a spot kick after Yorwerth was fouled in the box by the Nigerian striker.

Jevani Brown scored just before the hour mark to make sure of three points for Cambridge United.

Still in the English fourth-tier, at the Hive Stadium, where Nigeria faced Serbia on Tuesday, John Akinde notched a brace in Barnet's 2-1 win over Crewe Alexandra.

The striker converted a spot kick in the 51st minute to give The Bees a 1-0 lead, then McKirdy restored parity before the Nigerian grabbed the winner from the spot with three minutes remaining.

Simeon Akinola and Fumnaya Shomotun were in action for 59 and 13 minutes respectively for Barnet, who are the basement team in the division.
