Nixon inspired Chittagong Abahani to their first league win
Brazilian Nixon Guilherme is gradually exerting his influence on Chittagong Abahani Limited as the striker continued his scoring streak to lead the port city outfit to a 1-0 win over Arambagh Krira Sangha in the Bangladesh Premier League at Bangabandhu National Stadium in Dhaka Thursday.
The Brazilian had also netted in the previous game and was on target in the half hour mark when he volleyed home wonderfully after expertly receiving Nigerian forward Chinedu Mathew’s cross on his thighs.
Maruful Haque’s charges badly missed the services of their Brazilian teammate in the semi-final defeat to Saif Sporting Club in the season opening Federation Cup due to groin injury, but Nixon was on hand to inspire Chittagong Abahani to their first league win.
Arambagh in contrast suffered their second league loss.
