Enugu Rangers Ivorian forward, Seka Pascal and Bendel Insurance gaffer, Monday Odigie, have emerged as League Bloggers Awards (LBA) Player and Manager for the month of April, respectively in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).
The duo claimed the individual prizes for their outstanding outings in the month under review with their clubs.
Pascal scored four goals in six matches to beat Bendel Insurance goalkeeper, Amas Obasogie, Nasarawa United’s Sunusi Ibrahim and Enyimba’s Thomas Zenke to claim the gong.
Unbeaten Odigie faced a serious challenge from Enyimba’s Usman Abdallah, who was also unbeaten, Rangers’ Gbenga Ogunbote and Rivers United’s Stanley Eguma.
However, Odigie edged his counterparts after stopping Ogunbote’s unbeaten run and claiming a rare point at the Enyimba fortress, in Aba.
He also earned a point at Kwara United to finish unbeaten and a draw at home with Remo Stars.
Abdallah played goalless with Insurance at home and Lobi Stars away then defeated Kwara United at home.
Ogunbote had a brilliant run with road trips wins at Kwara United and Sunshine Stars as well as home victories over Katsina United, Sunshine Stars and MFM.
Insurance, led by Odigie eventually dented his record.
The LBA’s monthly award is sponsored by Naija League Magazine, nigerianfootballer.com, destination brand, Jos Chillin and online shopping portal, Naarya Stores.
Pascal and Odigie will receive their awards in the coming week.
