Nigerian giants, Enyimba secured a slim victory over Williamsville Athletic Club at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium, Port Harcourt on Wednesday.
It was a matchday three encounter of the CAF Confederation Cup. It saw the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side win 1-0 over the Cote d’Ivoire club.
With the win, Enyimba moved to top position in Group C, having won their first group game and lost their second, to now stand on 6 points.
Bouncing back from a 3-0 defeat against CARA Brazzaville of Congo, Enyimba revived their hopes of reaching the next round as Ibrahim Mustapha fired them to victory in the sixth minute.
Williamsville, with four points from three games, dropped to occupy second position in the group.
Djoliba of Mali who occupy last position with one point will host third placed CARA Brazzaville later on Wednesday.
Enyimba will be hosted by Williamsville in their next fixture on July 29.
