Delta Stars tried to find their rthym back into the game just immediately after conceding the goal. Efforts from Favour Martins and Smith Asuquo went off target.

John Odey made things worse for Delta stars as he converted Abdulrashid Aliyu perfect cross to score the second in the 29th minutes of action.

It ended at half time, Giodano FC 1-0 Delta Stars, the second half was more relaxed and even in display of possession, chances created and opportunities missed.
