Abdullahi Musa struck at the death as Wikki Tourists fought back to beat Federation Cup winners FC Ifeanyiubah 2-1 in the opening game of the 2016 Super4 in Enugu.

Yaya Kone had put the Anambra Warriors in front from the spot after King Osanga was clipped in the box by Abdullahi Musa in the 56th minute.

The comeback begins

But the Bauchi Elephant levelled matters with six minutes left through Shammah Tanze.

Late winner

Baba Ganaru’s side eventually had the last laugh as Musa struck a late winner to hand the Tourists three points from the cagey contest.

Reigning NPFL champions Rangers and Rivers United, who finished second last season, are the two other sides in the tournament.
