The Nigeria Professional Football League today enters its match day 26 with interesting fixtures on the table.
Kano Pillars have a difficult task ahead of them which they must win if they’re to remain on top of the log at the end of the match day.
The Sai Masu Gida still without Ahmed Musa will bank on the NPFL veteran, Rabiu Ali who scored his 100 NPFL goals against Enyimba on Sunday.
Pillars last two visits to Port Harcourt ended in a 2-1 defeat but will look to get at least a point in this one.
Akwa United could go top on Thursday if they win their match against Heartland and Kano Pillars lose in Port Harcourt today.
The Promise Keepers dropped two points from a winning position on Sunday against Wikki Tourist.
Akwa have won 3 out of their last four encounters against Heartland including a 2-1 win in Owerri March 2019.
Church Boys, MFM FC who have not lost a game since April 4 (7 unbeaten games) will welcome Abia Warriors to the Soccer Temple, Agege Lagos.
The Olukoya Boys have conceded only a goal in six of their second Stanza matches which included a 3-0 away walkover victory over FC Ifeanyi Ubah.
Abia Warriors have not been doing well since the start of the second stanza recording only a win out of six games but will hope to turn things around today against MFM FC. Warriors have won one out of their last two visits to the Soccer Temple.
Dakkada FC who lost by a lone goal at home to Lobi Stars over the weekend will look to compound Sunshine Stars woes when they visit them in Akure.
Sunshine Stars have now played 18 matches without a win in the 2020/21 NPFL season and they’ve seen veteran coach Gbenga Ogunbote and his team leave them in the process.
The last time both sides met at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium Uyo, Sunshine Stars won by 2 goals to 1.
After a disappointing result in Kaduna against Kano Pillars, Enyimba will target a resounding victory against whipping boys, Adamawa United when both sides meet later today.
The People’s Elephant who existed the CAF Confederation Cup scandalously have three outstanding matches which could earn them a place in the top three if results goes their way.
