The week four encounter between Kano Pillars and Enyimba is no doubt the biggest fixture in Glo Premier League this season so far.
The clash will see some of the biggest names in the domestic scene come face to face with each other.
Defending Champions Pillars can boast of quality stars like Rabiu Ali, Theophilous Afelokhai, Gambo Mohammed and a host of others.
Enyimba on their part can call on last season’s topscorer, Mfom Udoh and other notable names like Kingsley Sokari, captain Chinedu Udoji and Raphael Boumsong.
Aside from these stars that are expected to light up the Sani Abacha Stadium, the two men that will man the dugouts will also command attention.
Okey Emordi for Pillars and Kadiri Ikhana for Enyimba. Both are veterans who have handled both sides. Emordi and Ikhana have won laurels with either team at different times.
Ikhana guided Pillars to their maiden Nigeria Premier League triumph in 2008. This was after leading Enyimba to their first Champions League in 2003, the first time in thirty-nine years a Nigerian club had managed to do so. Emordi meanwhile helped The Elephants retain the title the following year before going on to steer Pillars to their fourth league title last season.Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
