Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries FC beat Kwara United 1-0 courtesy of a second half goal by Adebayo Waheed in one of Matchday 2 fixtures of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) played on Wednesday at the Soccer Temple, Agege Stadium.

MFM FC made two changes to the team that played Abia Warriors in the first away game of the new season. Olatunbosun Sikiru and Abayomi Lawal replaced Adegboyega Adekunle and Nasamu Emmanuel respectively in Wednesday's line up while goalkeeper, Folarin Abayomi and others kept their places.

Kwara United began the entertaining match with the first kick of the ball and put few passes together before surrendering the ball to the hosts.

Tchato Giscard made the first impact of the game  in the 17th minute of the encounter when he tested the visitors goalkeeper, Jonah Usman with an audacious shot but his effort was saved.

The Harmony Boys put themselves together after Tchato's attempt on goal and later dictated the play of the game. The first 45 minutes ended in a barren draw for both teams.
