Ekiti United rallied round to restore parity but failed to make good use of their chances with the Omoluabi Giants holding the advantage into the interval.

Two minutes after the interval, Osun United doubled their lead when Ebuka Chukwu’s error dropped the ball to an umarked Anifowose who flipped it over the onrushing Ekiti United goalkeeper, Believe Imiete whose touch was not enough to stop the ball from finding the back of the net.
