The visitors on resumption of the second opened the scores on the 51st minute through Francis Larbi whose shot beat Fatau Dauda to silence the home fans.

Both sides fought strongly in the latter stages of the game to go on top but failed to convert the chances that came their way as the game ended on a one all note.
