Crime Busters FC of Enugu on Wednesday defeated AC United of Abakpa 3-1 at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu, in a tune-up match.

The match is one of the series of tune matches lined up for Crime Busters ahead of the upcoming Nigeria Nationwide League (NNL) play-offs.

Although the date for the play-offs has not been announced, the club is using the matches to sharpen the competitive edge of the players.

Alex Oguedo put Crime Busters ahead in the 26th minute with an assist from Afamefuna Okoh.

Zion Okoro made it two in the 47th minute through Ifeanyi Ugwu assist, as Ugwu’s solo effort in the 53rd minute sealed the match for the Nationwide Lague One (NLO) side.

AC United’s consolation goal came from a spot kick in the 82nd minute through Chijindu Chukwu.

Speaking to newsmen after the match, Crime Busters’ Media Officer, Olieh Otuechelu, said that the players played well.

“We are preparing seriously for the play-offs as we have lined up some friendly matches ahead.

“This match with AC United is one of them and all these matches are to ensure that the players are fit pending when the play-offs will begin.

“Our players are in high spirit and this time around want to right the wrongs of the last play-offs.

“Once beaten twice shy, we will not want what happened to us in Markudi in 2018 play-offs to repeat itself,’’ Otuechelu said.
