Completesportsnigeria.com Glo Premier League expert ADEBOYE AMOSU serves his weeky dish of the five key things to look out for as the exciting season winds down…
CAN SUNSHINE STARS OUTSHINE WOLVES IN WARRI THRILLER?
Sunshine Stars have breathed a new life into their title aspirations with back to back wins against Kwara United and Abia Warriors.
The Owena Waves have struggled on the road in this campaign, with only two wins to show for their effort.
Kennedy Boboye’s charges beat Kwara United 2-1 in their last away game and a repeat of that result will be massive for them.
And what better time to play Wolves than now when the team is in disarray due to unpaid wages.
CAN ENYIMBA EDGE HEARTLAND IN ORIENTAL DERBY?
Enyimba beat Oriental rivals Heartland 2-0 when both sides met earlier in the season. The Peoples Elephant will be desperate to do a double over their neighbors.
Heartland who are in the 10th position on the log are virtually out of the title race and securing a continental ticket also looks beyond them.
So, they will be playing for pride, while Enyimba will be keen to secure maximum points.
RELEGATION WAR IN ILORIN
Nothing but a win will do for Kwara United as they go to battle against fellow strugglers Akwa United in Ilorin on Sunday.
The Harmony Boys look like a sure candidate for the drop at this stage of this season, but a win in this fixture could help them get their season back on track.
As for Akwa United they will look to build on their impressive 2-0 home win against Nasarawa United last weekend.
CAN VICTOR EZEJI DERAIL ENYIMBA’S TITLE HOPES?
Veteran forward Victor Ezeji made his bow for Heartland in Monday’s loss to Bayelsa United. On Sunday, he will come up against his former side, Enyimba, in Owerri.
The big question is, can he haunt the former African Champions and hinder their title aspirations?
CAN BAYELSA UNITED, FC TARABA SURVIVE TOUGH AWAY FIXTURES?
Relegation haunted Bayelsa United and FC Taraba have a tough battle on their hands as both face Shooting Stars and Wikki Tourists respectively on Sunday.
Wikki will be all out to secure a win against Taraba to revive their title hopes, while Bayelsa United may find 3SC a hard nut to crack.
Bayelsa head into their game in confident mood following the win against Heartland in their last game. Taraba drew 1-1 at home to El-Kanemi Warriors.
