NPFL: MFM, Rangers Set Lagos On Fire; Pillars Face Giwa Test

By Adeboye Amosu:

Nigeria Professional Football League leaders Rangers' title credentials will be put to the test when they confront high flying MFM FC at the Agege Stadium, Lagos on Wednesday, reports

The Flying Antelopes  lost 3-1 against Lobi Stars in their last away fixture and will hope for better luck this time around.

MFM FC drew their last home fixture against Kano Pillars, the only time they have failed to record a win at home this season.

Former champions, Kano Pillars, will be up against Giwa FC at the Rwang Pam Stadium, Jos.
Pillars who are unbeaten in their last six league games have tasted defeat only once this season.

Their top striker, Gambo Mohammed, is available again after missing the club's last two league games due to injury.
Lobi Stars will welcome Wikki Tourists at home in Makurdi.

The visitors will look to their top scorer,  Godwin Obaje, who has hit the back four times to help them pick a win in this game.

For Lobi Stars, NPFL leading marksman Anthony Okpotu (who has scored six goals and contributed three assists) will be the go-to man once again.

Second placed FC IfeanyiUbah have a chance to move to first position in the table should they beat Plateau United in Nnewi and Rangers lose or draw against MFM FC, while Akwa United will look to end Abia Warriors' unbeaten streak when both teams clash at the Akwa Ibom Stadium, Uyo.

Shooting Stars will be out to compound the woes of struggling Ikorodu United in their South West tie in Ibadan.

Rivers United and El-Kanemi Warriors will slug it out at the Yakubu Gown Stadium, Port Harcourt.

Bottom-placed Nasarawa United are up against Heartland in Makurdi. The Solid Miners have won one and lost five of their games this season.

Confluence Stadium, Lokoja will host the  final midweek game between Niger Tornadoes and Sunshine Stars.
