Abia Warriors Host Rangers, As Lobi Battle Pillars For Top Spot
The battle for top spot on the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) table will heat up as Week 6 of the season takes centre stage this weekend, reports africanfootball.com.
Leaders, Rangers, will face high-flying Abia Warriors in Umuahia, as they seek to consolidate their leadership of the table.
Ghanaian goalkeeper, Nana Bonsu, has returned from a rib injury, which kept him out against Wikki, while midfielder Emeka Eze is expected to return to training this week after recovering from a groin injury.
It promises to be a difficult match as hosts Abia Warriors are yet to lose a game out of the five they have played so far.
A win for Rangers will keep them top of the table with 13 points, while victory for Abia Warriors could shoot them to the top with 11 points, depending on the outcome of the game between Lobi Stars and Pillars.
Kano Pillars are second on the table with same points as leaders, Rangers, and can go top of the standings should they post a better win at Lobi than ‘The Flying Antelopes’.
NPFL new boys, MFM FC, who are on 10 points, could return to the league summit if they beat El Kanemi Warriors by a big margin.
