Nigeria Professional Football League leaders, Enugu Rangers will look to bounce back from last weekend's disappointing 3-1 loss to Rivers United when they confront perennial rivals, Shooting Stars Sports Club of Ibadan at the Nnamdi Azikwe Stadium, Enugu on Sunday, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.

The Flying Antelopes boast of a hundred percent record at home in the league this season.

They will be without two regular players; Bobby Clement and Obinna Nwobodo for the game.

3SC are without a win in their last two games as they go into the games.

Second placed Kano Pillars will host basement side Ikorodu United at the Sani Abacha Stadium.

The Sai Masu Gida lost at home for the first time this season in a rescheduled week-seven tie in midweek against Enyimba, while Ikorodu United halted a run of 10 games without a win by securing a comprehensive 3-1 win against Heartland last weekend.

High flying MFM FC of Lagos will confront Lobi Stars at the Aper Aku Stadium.

The Olukoya Boys beat Nasarawa United 2-1 in their first visit to the ground and will look to replicate that impressive feat against the Pride of Benue.

Their top striker, Musa Newman is available for selection again after missing last weekend's win against Akwa United due to suspension.

At the Umuahia Township Stadium, Abia Warriors who are yet to lose at home this season have a chance to protect that record when they confront troubled Giwa FC on Saturday.

Champions Enyimba who are still basking in the euphoria of their midweek road trip win against Kano Pillars are up against Niger Tornadoes.

The People Elephants have drawn their last two home games, while Tornadoes are without a win on the road.

South- South sides, Warri Wolves and Rivers United will do battle at the Warri City Stadium.

The visitors head into the game in boisterous mood following their 3-1 against Rangers last Sunday and will welcome three key players; Wilson Andoh, Guy Kuemian and Chinonso Okonkwo from injury and suspension.

Nasarawa United will seek to pick their first point on the road when they face home side, Wikki Tourists at the Abubakar Tafawa Bello Stadium, Bauchi.

It will be a battle between northern rivals in Bauchi as Wikki Tourists and Nasarawa United clash at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium.
