Two-time Confederation of African Football (CAF) Champions League winners, Enyimba, are through to the final of this year’s Federation Cup after seeing off Lobi Stars by a lone goal at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin on Wednesday.

The other match between Akwa United and Warri Wolves in Bauchi was suspended 10 minutes to the dead of time because of a heavy rain with both teams leveled at one goal apiece.

Eagles’ striker Ifeanyi Edeh’s second-half finish proved pivotal to the Aba side’s cup challenge as they proceed to their fifth cup final in eight years.

Five minutes to the half hour mark, Enyimba goalkeeper Femi Thomas exquisitely saved a Bassey Ezekiel’s dangerous pull out from the left flank, before keeping out a Moses Okumo’s powerful shot.

Kingsley Sokari failed to convert an early chance to hand Enyimba the lead as he was unable to connect with Ugwu Uwadiegwu’s inviting cross.

Edeh guided home the match winner from a Bright Esieme’s assist on 59 minute.

After a goalless first-half in Bauchi, Akwa United took the lead inside the last 20 minute through Ukeme Davies before Oghenekaro Etebo leveled up for Wolves.

According to MTNFootball.com, the replay of the rain disrupted match has been fixed for Thursday at the same venue.

Two-time cup winners, Enyimba, now waits for the winner of the second semi-final to know their opponent for the September 15 final at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.
