Bendel Insurance yesterday all but cemented their promotion to the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) following their 1-0 defeat of Remo Stars in the day’s star match of the on-going Nigerian National League (NNL) Super Eight play-off. The competition is holding at the Enyimba Stadium, Aba.
Playing in the Southern Zone, Insurance had on Monday beaten Delta Force 3-0 and now have six points from two games, which means that it would take a high score loss against 3SC today to stop their march to the elite class.
