NPFL By: Ayodeji Tunde | 11/10/2017

Heartland FC have made a swift return to the Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL after spending just one season in the Nigeria National League.

The Naze Millionaires on Wednesday piped First Bank 1-0 at the Agege Stadium to seal their return to the elite cadre

The all-important goal that helped Heartland back to the Premier cadre was scored by Okoro Ndukwe.

With just one game left to be played, Heartland enjoy a five-point cushion with 60 points from 31 games.

It is worthy of note that John Obi Mikel's brother, Ebele is the goal keeper for Heartland and he was very instrumental to the promotion of the Oriental giants.
