Enyimba qualified for the next round of the 2015 Federation Cup without kicking a ball after the People’s Elephant walked over their Round of 64 foe, Nassarawa Feeders who failed to show up for their match slated for the Osogbo Township Stadium on Wednesday.
The People’s Elephant’s striker, Amanfor Chimezie told Goal that they really prepared for the Round of 64 tie only to be told that Nassarawa Feeders won’t be honouring the match at the eleventh hour.
He said the break would afford the players the luxury of preparing very well for the Sunday’s league clash in Port Harcourt with Dolphins FC adding that it was awesome qualifying for the next round without the pressure of playing a match.
Goal was told that the match officials on duty performed the walk over formalities and handed three points and three goals to the back to back defending champions.
In other results high profile clubs in the top flight like 3SC, Sunshine Stars and Giwa FC were some of the early casualties of the Federation Cup after they were booted out by lower league sides in the games played on Wednesday.
3SC of Ibadan couldn’t get their bearing against Plateau United of Jos after they were beaten 1-0 through the 25th minute strike of Golbe Elisha while Giwa FC were humiliated on penalties by non league side Kururuku Dragons of Benin.
