Title Chasers Enyimba, Wolves Face Tricky Away Ties

By Adeboye Amosu:

Glo Premier League leaders, Enyimba, will face a huge test in their bid to win a record seventh title when they confront El-Kanemi Warriors in a week 30 tie on Sunday.
The encounter at the Karkanda Stadium will see the side with the worst defence in the league come up against the one with the best back line.
The hosts have managed just one win in their last three home games, while Enyimba have lost once in their last five fixtures on the road.
Second-placed Warri Wolves will hope to extend their supremacy over Abia Warriors and keep in touch with Enyimba when both sides clash in Umuahia.
Wolves have won the last three meetings between the two teams. The Seasiders did the double over the Warriors last season and won the reverse fixture 2-0.
In Bauchi, Wikki Tourists should have little problems dealing with a struggling Bayelsa United side who have managed to score a only paltry three goals on the road.
The Restoration Boys have also amassed five wins from 29 matches and will need to be at their best to avoid a dismal result in this game.
Sharks will take their survival fight to Jos where they will come up against Giwa FC at the Rwang Pam Stadium.
The Blue Angels forced their hosts to a barren draw in this fixture last season and a repeat of this result will bode well for their ambition to stay in the top flight.
Shooting Stars will seek to improve their position on the log when they tackle Akwa United in Ibadan.
In Lafia, Nasarawa United’s forward Esosa Igbinoba will look to continue his fine form for the Solid Miners when they tackle Rangers.
Esosa has scored four goals in his last four games, including two which helped the Lafia-based oufit snatch victory at Sunshine Stars last weekend.
The last two meetings between these two sides ended in a goalless draw.
Champions Kano Pillars are up against FC IfeanyiUbah. While Pillars have failed to register a goal in their last three away fixtures, the hosts have not let in a goal in their last four games at the Rojenny Stadium.
Heartland and Lobi Stars will clash at the Dan Anyiam Stadium, while Dolphins will host Taraba United in a clash between two sides who are fighting to beat the drop.
