Another set of mouthwatering matches are on the plate for league fans and football lovers to savour as the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) match day 10 set to take place across nine match centres today.
The match between Dakkada International FC and Akwa United catches fancy due to the fact that the two teams emanate from the same state and run by the government of Akwa Ibom State.
In a game that has been dubbed by many as ”Ibom Derby”, the game pitches two teams with sides to the start of the season. One with a good run of form this season and seated second on the log with 16 points. While the other team has been huffing and puffing this season and seated fifteenth on the log with ten points.
New comers Dakkada International FC who changed from Akwa Starlet recently, have been good this season beating top teams like Enugu Rangers at the Cathedral and Enyimba in Uyo.
For Akwa United, the story has been different has they had struggled so far prior to the last match. This poor run of form amongst other factors led to the resignation of the team’s technical adviser, John Obuh. He was replaced by Kennedy Boboye.
Though they have lost against Kano Pillars at home this season, coach Caleb Esu’s side have it all in their arsenal to beat their sister club.
After streaks of not-too-good results, Akwa United seem rejuvenated with the coming of Kennedy Boboye. They won their last game 2-1 against Rivers United, and this may be the resurgence they seek playing against high flying Dakkada.
The tricky game comes by 4 pm Nigerian time at the Uyo Stadium.
