By Adeboye Amosu:
ARE WE GOING TO SEE ANOTHER HAT-TRICK?
Bayelsa United’s Bernard Ovoke scored the season’s third hat-trick in the Restoration Boys’ 4-1 home win against El-Kanemi Warriors last weekend to add the one already recorded by Ifeanyi Egwin and Prince Aggreh of Dolphins and Sunshine Stars respectively.
With nine games set to take place across nine different centres on Sunday, it will be interesting to see if there will be another brilliant individual performance.
CAN NASARAWA UNITED’S ESOSA IGBINOBA CONTINUE FINE FORM?
Esosa Igbinoba is the in-form forward in the Glo Premier League at the moment. Igbinoba scored a brace in the Solid Miners’ 3-2 road trip win against Sunshine Stars last weekend to increase his season’s tally to 13.
He has hit the back of the net four times in his last four games for his side. Rangers defenders will no doubt have a tough time trying to stop him.
DOLPHIN, TARABA UNITED CLASH IN BATTLE OF STRUGGLERS
Dolphins and Taraba United clash in Port Harcourt with both sides knowing that nothing but a win will be good for their ambition of escaping the drop.
Only two points separate the two sides in the table with Dolphins sitting in the 18th position and Taraba United coming behind them.
Dolphins look good for a win as they have recorded clean sheets in their last three home games, while Taraba United have failed to score in their last two away fixtures.
CAN EL-KANEMI WARRIORS DERAIL ENYIMBA’S TITLE QUEST?
The Peoples Elephant look on course to secure a record seventh Glo Premier League title, but must first negotiate a tricky away contest against El-kanemi Warriors to enhance their chances of achieving that.
El-Kanemi will go all out to secure maximum points in the game to boost their survival hopes.
They are not only up against the side with the best defence in the league, but one that is also capable of scoring goals aplenty.
CAN KANO PILLARS END AWAY GOAL DROUGHT?
The defending champions have failed to register a goal in their last three away games against Enyimba, FC Taraba and Sharks.
They face a difficult battle to end the drought against an FC IfeanyiUbah side that have been in fine form at home in recent weeks, recording three home wins in a row and also keeping clean sheets in the last four home matches.
