Completesportsnigeria.com’s ADEBOYE AMOSU raises the most pertinent queries as the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) reaches an exciting climax…
CAN RIVERS UNITED END THEIR POOR AWAY RUN?
League leaders Rivers United’s title credentials will be put to the test when they confront title rivals Wikki Tourists in Bauchi on Sunday.
The Pride of Rivers must overcome their poor run of form on the road if they are to maintain their position at the top table. They have failed to register a goal in their last nine away games and have also registered a paltry seven points on their travels this season.
And with their hosts desperate to return to winning ways following a run of three games without a win, Stanley Eguma and his charges are in for a tough time at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium.
CAN IKORODU UNITED EXTEND UNBEATEN STREAK?
Though they are bound to compete in the second tier, the Nigeria National League, next season, Ikorodu United have recently proved they can rub shoulders with the best sides in the top flight.
The Oga Boys are unbeaten in their last four games in the Nigeria Professional Football League.
The Theo de Jong-led side have followed their away victory against Heartland with impressive wins against Kano Pillars and Plateau United.
They will look to continue that run when they face Plateau United at the Rwang Pam Stadium, Jos.
CAN ABIA WARRIORS TURN THEIR SEASON AROUND?
Abia Warriors are having it tough after starting the season on a high. The Umuahia- based side are without a win in their last six games in the league.
They face a tough battle against a Nasarawa United side who are in the hunt for a continental ticket.
Abdullahi Biffo’s men currently occupy the 17th position in the table and failure to win the game could end their two year stay in the top flight.
WILL SUNSHINE STARS DERAIL ENUGU RANGERS’ TITLE BID?
Enugu Rangers were upstaged at the top of the standings last weekend by Rivers United following a 2-1 in Ibadan against Shooting Stars.
On Sunday, they will slug it out with Sunshine Stars at the Nnamdi Azikwe Stadium, Enugu hoping to return to winning ways.
For the visitors, who have garnered 50 points from 33 games, a win will see them mount a late charge for a continental ticket and become the first side to beat the Flying Antelopes at their backyard.
