–Enyimba confront Wolves; 3SC, Giwa clash in Ibadan
By Adeboye Amosu:
Glo Premier League leaders, Sunshine Stars of Akure will look to maintain top position in the Glo Premier League when they entertain Bayelsa United at the Akure Township on Sunday.
The Akure Gunners have a hundred per cent record at home, and look good to extend that run against a Bayelsa United side that have struggled for form this season.
And with second placed Enyimba facing a tricky road trip to Warri Wolves, a win will surely boost the People’s Elephant’s title aspiration.
Enyimba missed a golden opportunity to go top last weekend as they were held to a 2-2 draw at home by Oriental rivals, Abia Warriors.
They head into the game in poor mood following their shocking ouster from the Federation Cup in the midweek at the hands of National League side, Remo Stars.
Shooting Stars also face a tough home game against Giwa FC at the Lekan Salami Stadium, Adamasingba, Ibadan.
The Oluyole Warlords have lost only once in seven game since Gbenga Ogunbote took charge of the team while the visitors have not tasted defeat in five games.
Champions Kano Pillars will face Akwa United at the Akwa Ibom International Stadium. The Masu Gida need nothing but a win to bolster their chances of succesfully defending their title.
High flying Wikki Tourists of Bauchi also have a chance to continue their cinderella run when they host El-kanemi Warriors.
Rangers will keep a date with Lobi Stars at the Nnamdi Azikwe Stadium, while Heartland will file out against Dolphins at home.
Ifeanyi Uba who are targetting a continental ticket are on the road to Nasarawa United.
Their Oriental neighbours, Abia Warriors have a chance to compound struggling Taraba United woes when both sides come face to face at the Enyimba Sports Stadium.
Kwara United and Sharks, two teams who have find life difficult in the league this season will also go head to head at the Ilorin Township Stadium.
