Rivers United's title defence is boosted by a win over Sunshine Stars - Eguma

Rivers United head coach Stanley Eguma believes that his team's first-day victory in the Nigeria Premier League Super Six playoffs against Sunshine Stars will inspire them to successfully defend their title.

Ebube Duru's second-half penalty gave the defending champions the win at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena in Onikan, Lagos.

“It was crucial we began with a victory just to keep the winning mentality going,” he stated in a chat with the media after the game.

“We know their game so we had to make some tactical adjustment which gave us victory.

“Overall, it was a good game from both sides.”

Rivers United will take on Remo Stars on matchday two of the playoff on Monday.
