They were made to earn their win and wages but like good teams always do, the City Hawks found a way to survive the scare from Blak Haus to seal all three points.
Blak Haus are yet to win a game this season and against Egba City, it was clear to see why. The Egypt 80 Band boys were a hard nut to crack despite going 1-0 down in typical fashion as Egba took an early lead.
However, that goal looked like the tonic the Blak side needed as they became a different side thereafter and were handed a chance to equalize when the ref pointed to the spot.
Ajayi Ben, however, missed the resultant spot-kick before making amends later with a beautiful chip to draw Haus level with what was only their second goal of the season.
Egba restored their lead later with another goal and held on for the win that saw them leapfrog 96 Champions as the new leaders.
