Ten-Man Enyimba Downs Pillars to Claim Charity Cup.

Ten-man Enyimba FC secured a 2-0 victory over Nigeria Professional Football League champions Kano Pillars in the Charity Cup final on Thursday.

Ifeanyi Edeh opened scoring for the last season’s Glo Premier League runners-up in the 23rd minute at the Warri City Stadium.

The ‘People’s Elephant’ were reduced to ten men three minutes after the break when defender Ugwu Uwadiegwu got his marching orders for a second bookable offense.

Pillars failed to capitalise on the numerical advantage as Sibi Gwar doubled Enyimba’s lead in the 69 minute.
