“NPFL started on a very good note by recording four away wins. I think this a good sign that Nigerian league will surely get better under the IMC,” Sam Sodje told www.totorinews.com exclusively.

“It is not easy for clubs to win at away. It sends so many signals of good things about NPFL. One is that, if you work hard and play to high standard, you can win your game even at an away or get favourable result.

“When a team scores three goals at away, it shows that the team is good and officiating was topnotch professionalism, talking about Shooting Stars that played 3-3 with Plateau United in Jos.
