Ikorodu City FC are now without a win from their last three games as Ekiti United defeated them by two goals to one on Sunday at the Oluyemi Kayode Stadium, Ado-Ekiti.
It only took three minutes for the host to break the deadlock and make it a long day for the visitors from Lagos.
However, in the 12th minute, Paul Ogunkoya found the back of the net, connecting to a Salami Ismail’s cross to draw the host level.
In the second half, the host got back in front at the hour mark after a costly deflection saw the ball amble to the back of the net.
All efforts to get a second equalizer for the Abiodun Obafemi led-side went south as Ekiti United protected their one-goal lead till the final whistle.
The loss compound the woes of Coach Abiodun Obafemi and his technical crew after they were given a three-match ultimatum to turn the tides around and get the team back on a winning streak.
All attention will now be fixed to the next game against Ibom Youths in Lagos to see if Obafemi and his crew can save their jobs.
