NPFL leading goal scorer, Stephen Odey, helped his side MFM FC to a crucial win over Katsina United with his goal no. 18 this season.

Goals from Odey and Sikiru Olatunbosun put MFM ahead in the first half of the game.
Kastina’s Destiny Ashadi and Obinna Eleje later scored to draw level, before Chukwuka Onuwa scored the third to hand MFM the win.
