It’s another week of Nigerian football and another week to witness the frills and thrills of the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) as match day twenty-one fixtures will be played this weekend.

Top on the books of is the table topper clash between Lobi Stars of Makurdi and Plateau United of Jos.

The two teams have two points separating them and whatever the result will change the setting of things on the log.

Lobi Stars seem more in need of this as they are adrift of the Jos side and had lost the first leg on match day one where Plateau United defeated Lobi Stars three goals to one.

At Aper Aku Stadium, Lobi Stars will not only have revenge in their minds but going top will also be a driving force for all they to achieve this is to beating their rivals come Sunday.

Plateau United on the other hand, have in mind that games like this are what could be deciders to being crowned champions ”as you need to beat the big boys to be called big boys.”

As the highest scoring side, scoring will not be a problem for the league leaders who also have the highest number of clean sheet.

Coincidentally, Lobi also proud themselves with a good defensive record as they also are joint as having highest number of clean sheet just like Plateau.

With two experienced coaches at the dugout;Abdul Maikaba and Gbenga Ogunbote, the teams are delicately poised to throw in all they have got to take this tie.

On the flip side, Lobi Stars who were best defensively until last weekend will be worried about their defensive frailties of recent and will need to take caution at the back against the likes Ibrahim Mustapha, Uche Onwuasoanya and Abba Umma of Plateau United.

Plateau United will also need to improve on their home record even though it has not lost in two away matches this February.

In all, Nigerian football fans and enthusiasts are in for a cracker of a game at Aper Aku Stadium on Sunday by 4 pm.
