Heartland FC who were swimming in the ocean of relegation made a bold statement after securing a 1-0 victory over Katsina United.
Chuwudi Nworgu’s goal through a penalty kick in injury time of the first half gave the Naze Millionaires their only goal.
The goal also became the only goal of the match and earned them the maximum points needed to leap out of the relegation zone.
Though they are in 17th position with 40 points, they move ahead of Kano Pillars who lost in their away game today against Abia Warriors.
Pillars however have an outstanding match and may move up if they get a victory and move top.
Meanwhile, Heartland FC must sustain their new found winning mentality if they must not go on relegation.
