Enyimba goalkeeper, John Noble, saved a penalty as the People’s Elephants settled for a goalless draw against newly promoted Nigeria Professional Football League side, Sporting

Lagos, in their second game of the Naija Super 8 tournament at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena in Lagos on Sunday.

The Super Eagles keeper made an easy catch of Rabiu Zulkifilu’s 75th minute spot kick to deny them a chance of stealing a famous victory towards the end of the game after

Chigozie Chilekwu impeded a Sporing player in the box.

Noble’s heroics won him the Hero of The Match award, but the outcome of the game wasn’t enough for Enyimba, who needed to reignite their challenge after losing their first game

against Remo Stars on Friday.

George Finidi’s side are bottom of Group A with one point from two matches, while Sporting have one point from one match.
