Enyimba captain and centre-back, Chinedu Udoji will be available for manager Kadiri Ikhana's selection when Nasarawa United visit for a match-day 14 tie in Aba this weekend, Completesportsnigeria.com understands.
Udoji played no part in the six time champions' scoreless draw at Shooting Stars on Sunday in a match day-13 fixture following a one match suspension as a result of two yellow card ofenses.
Udoji picked a second caution in Enyimba's 2-0 win over Oriental rivals, Heartland, a development that ruled him out of the trip to Shooting Stars.
Manager Ikhana had to draft in Ifeanyi Anaemena to fill the void as he partnered Emma Anyanwu in the People's Elephant back-line.
Having served out his one match suspension, Udoji is on the line for a return to Enyimba starting line up when Nasarawa United visit Aba on Sunday.

"But he will be back when we play Nasarawa United in Aba. I tell you we have a very good team here.
"Udoji was not in the game, so also Mfom Udoh and Kingsley Sokari. So if we have all these players available given our form now, there is no team we can't handle", the player added.
Kingsley Sokari is understood to have traveled to Esperance of Tunisia to sort out his personal terms with the club ahead a $400,000 move to the North African side who have Dolphins striker Emem Eduok on their payroll, and also on the verge of adding Bernard Bulbwa into their ranks.Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
