On Sunday, Ifeanyi Ubah of Nnewi will take on Lobi Stars of Makurdi in Match Day five of the Nigerian Professional Football League.
It will be a match where Ifeanyi Ubah who have been good at home so far seek to end Lobi Stars who have been in a roller coaster run in three games.
Lobi Stars after losing its first game 3-1 against Plateau United in Jos, have won the three matches played thereafter.
They walloped Delta Force four goals to zero, piped Kano Pillars at the Sani Abacha Stadium 1-0 and last Wednesday trounced Heartland of Owerri three goals to one at Markudi.
Ifeanyi Ubah have however won all it home games and will play to consolidate that run against a free-scoring Lobi side.
Ifeanyi Ubah sits seventh on the log against the Markudi side who is third in the league after four matches.
However, ardent followers of the NPFL know very well the difficulty that comes with winning away so this might just be Ifeanyi’s game.
Nonetheless, we have had various away wins and one of the them came from Lobi who defeated Pillars at home.
A look at the last game between this two teams doesn’t seem good for the Nnewi side as they lost 3-1 at home this year and lost 1-0 in the reverse fixture at Markurdi in 2018 against Lobi
