    Allen And Igbinoba Emerge Winners Of September LBA

    Allen and Esosa played active roles in their team's run in the month under review to edge other contenders for the awards.

    Sharks manager, Allen saw his team begin the month of September deep in relegation and two places away from safety. They were also two points below the drop zone.

    However, the Blue Angels under Allen succeeded in turning around their poor run by battling out of the drop zone with wins over champions Kano Pillars, FC Ifeanyiubah and fellow relegation-threatened rivals, Dolphins.

    At the end of September, Allen ensured Sharks finished two points adrift the drop zone.

    The Sharks gaffer edged Kabiru Dogo of Nasarawa United, Abdu Maikaba of Wikki Tourists and Gbenga Ogunbote of 3SC to the manager's award though the like of Kadiri Ikhana of Enyimba and Imama Amapakabo of Enugu Rangers also came close in the race.

    Igbinoba clearly made himself a visible figure in the scheme of things for Nasarawa United in the month of September from his midfield position. The attacking midfielder scored four times including twice at title contenders, Sunshine Stars, to inflict a 3-2 defeat on the Akure club. The Nasarawa United man's other goals came against Rangers and Warri Wolves.

    The trio of Bayelsa United striker Bernard Ovoke, Tope Orelope of 3SC and Sharks defender Gabriel Olalekan were pipped to the player's award by Igbinoba.

    Allen and Igbinoba will receive their awards for manager and player respectively later this month.
