Sunshine, Enyimba, Wolves Battle For Top Spot

By Adeboye Amosu:

It promises to be another interesting weekend as clubs in the Glo Premier League battle for points in different centres across the country.

Leaders Sunshine Stars will be guests of FC IfeanyiUbah at the Rojenny Stadium.

The Akure Gunners won the reverse fixture 2-1 with their top scorer, Tunde Adeniji, and Eze Stephen on the score sheet for their side.

Sunshine Stars have struggled to pick points on their travels and defeat could see them lose top position to either Enyimba or Warri Wolves.

Second placed Enyimba who forced Lobi Stars to a 1-1 draw when both sides clashed earlier in the season, will hope to get the better of the Makurdi-based side this time around when they square up at the Enyimba Sports Stadium.

New boy Musa Najare is a major doubt for the game after sustaining an injury in the midweek clash against Akwa United, but coach Kadiri Ikhana still has a rich list of attacking talents to call on with the likes of Mfom Udoh, Ezekiel Bassey and Alloy Browne available for selection.

Warri Wolves are up against a depleted Giwa FC side at the Rwang Pam Stadium.

The hosts will be without their top scorer, Ibrahim Shuaibu, and Amos Gyang who are both serving a three-game suspension due to the straight red cards they bagged against Kwara United in Ilorin in the concluding match of the first stanza.

They will also be without injured Charles Okoro (ankle) and Chris Madaki (foot).

Heartland will hope to do a double over Shooting Stars when both sides clash in the early kick-off tie at the Rojenny Stadium.

The Naze Millionaires beat 3SC 2-1 in their first meeting in Ibadan.

Coach Bethel Orji could hand new arrival, Fortune Oniwari, his debut in the game.

Champions Kano Pillars who have won their last two games under new coach, Mohammed Babaganaru, will keep a date with 19th placed Bayelsa United in Oghara.

Fourth placed Wikki Tourists who are without a win in their last three games have a chance to end the drought when they take on Nasarawa United.

Sharks have a chance to get back to winning ways when they entertain Rangers at the Sharks Stadium.

Dolphins will tackle Abia Warriors in Port Harcourt, while FC Taraba will keep a date with Akwa United in Jalingo.

El-Kanemi Warriors will host Kwara United at the Karkanda Stadium in the last fixture for the weekend.
