Promise Taiwo, Francis Odudu and Afolabi Olatubosun shrugged off knocks and return to the line up as Seye Ajayi prefers Raheem Quozim at the wing.

United masterclass proved too hot for visitors to handle in the early minutes as Essien’s combo with Sodiq remain the major outlets of dangerous feeds as Agbolade kept at bay by visitors.

Omoluabi Giants once again in the seventeenth minutes thought deadlock has been broken as Babatunde Sodiq skips past his marker and unleashed a low drive which skips past the goalkeeper only for woodwork to deny his great effort.

More and more chances were thrown at the opponents but resolute defenders ensured deadlock intact at the break.

Twenty minutes after the break, centre referee spotted a handball inside opponents area as pressure mounts, Dayo Agbolade made no mistake, sending the stand into frenzy as Ganiu Odumade was left stranded.

Tension continues to pile up immediately Omoluabi Giants took the lead, ljebu Utd fought back only to see their chances not utilized, same way Essien miscues a header off a fine delivery from fresh from the bench, Ayodele Ismail who worked few acres before releasing an inviting cross.

It’s second home win for ‘Believe And Achieve’ side whose gaffer, Seye Ajayi was full of praise for his lads, despite inconsistencies in arbiters roles. He noted that the win is a morale booster going into the new year.
