The Glo Premier League match day-8 fixture will hold at Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu.
LMC Chief Operating Officer, Salihu Abubakar has in pursuant to the directive, issued a notification to three clubs whose players are affected in Match Day-8 fixtures coming up on Sunday. The clubs are Shooting Stars, Enyimba and Rangers .
For Shooting Stars, they are not to field Ajani Ibrahim who is yet to be fully cleared to leave Sunshine Stars, their opponents on Sunday in Akure.
Enyimba International are billed to play Giwa FC in Aba on Sunday but Ifeanyi Anaemena John Momoh registered to play with Enyimba with a provisional clearance from the Jos side is therefore not eligible to play in the tie.
Bobby Clement, Osadebamwen Okoro and Okagbue Orji Kalu will also not be in action for Rangers when they play Heartland of Owerri as the three Heartland players have only received provisional clearance to join Rangers.
In the letters addressed separately to the clubs, the LMC said the notices are pursuant to the directives that no player on provisional clearance shall play against a club from which he is on provisional clearance until his transfer is fully resolved
