Akwa United are continuing their steady rise on the Nigeria Professional Football League log and they have now moved into second place despite still having two outstanding games.

Super Eagles midfield maestro Ifeanyi Ifeanyi scored a spectacular free kick as Akwa United came from a goal down to beat ten-man Heartland FC 2-1 at the Godswill Akpabio international Stadium in Uyo on Wednesday.

The Midfielder's free kick cancelled out Francis Momoh's early strike before Katoh Haggai scored in the second half to motivate the Promise Keepers to a 2-1 victory.
