LAGOS, (CAJ News) – NIGERIA’s GLO Premier League will resume with a full set of fixtures on Sunday as the competition intensify at both ends of the table.
Log-leaders Enyimba, who have a narrow lead at the top of the 20-team table, will be away at relegation-haunted Bayelsa United, who are only separated by a point from bottom-placed Taraba.
Taraba would be looking to ease their relegation worries meanwhile with a match against Lobi Stars, who are not safe from the relegation ace either.
In the battle of the teams placed in the middle, Nassarawa United will entertain Heartland FC.
15th-placed Akwa United have a date with 17th-placed Sharks while 10th-placed Enugu Rangers take on Ifeanyi Uba, who are three rungs lower in the standings.
Another potentially explosive fixture pits second-placed Sunshine Stars against Giwa who are placed fifth.
Warri Wolves, third on the standings would be eager to add to Dolphins’ relegation worries when the two sides clash also on Sunday.
In the battle of the Warriors, Abia Warriors will entertain El Kanemi Warriors in a match that can go either way.
Kwara United will not be in a hospitable mood when they host the Wikki Tourists, who are fourth on the log.
The round of matches concludes with a Kano Pillars-Shooting Stars clash.
All matches, except the fixture between Taraba and Lobi Stars scheduled for two hours earlier, kickoff at 1700 hrs.
