“There is no doubt that Bendel Insurance is enjoying a good run of form. They came to Uyo and got all three points on the opening day, and we are in Benin to recover the points we lost at home.

“Bendel Insurance are unbeaten after ten matches and that is why they are top of the log but as a coach, I know that every team in this League is beatable, including Bendel Insurance so our mission in Benin is to fight for all three points”.

Coach Ayeni has selected twenty players including youngster Wisdom Ndon who had a decent NPFL debut on Sunday for the crucial game against Bendel Insurance.

Akwa United are second in Group A with 18 points after recording five wins, three draws with two loses in ten games played so far, they will be hoping to close the gap to within three points on the leaders who have six points lead after ten rounds of matches.

    Nigeria about to miss yet another Olympic football tournament participation.
    No big surprise there.
    But to know that this 2nd leg game is being played at a neutral venue and yet we are on the verge of being knocked out after playing the 1st leg at ”home,” is nauseating to say the least.
    Coaches not appointed on merit, players not invited on merit and not selected on merit, either.
    A microcosm of Nigerian society!
