- Shooting set to eliminate Nasarawa
Mountain of Fire Football Club should better prepare for the worst on Sunday, as its players travel to Maiduguri to lock horns with ElKanemi Warriors in a Nigeria Professional league encounter.
The Fire boys are expected to carry the flaming performance to the North to test might against skipper Mustapha Ibrahim-led Warriors, who are bent on taming the Olukoya boys. The Warriors are determined to return to the winning path after they suffered a 0-2 defeat against Enyimba recently.
Ibrahim is optimistic that his team would be up and doing to beat the MFM boys at all cost. “We are ready to put in everything against MFM. There is no more story as nothing short of victory on Sunday is acceptable,” he said.
Also on Sunday, Rangers International of Enugu will take on Abia Warriors as Heartland of Owerri battle Enyimba in another Oriental showdown.
Ikorodu United will face Ifeanyi Ubah boys in another interesting encounter, while Plateau United takes on Akwa United. Kano Pillars are billed to play host to Lobi Stars of Makurdi.
Rivers United is set to rattle Niger Tornadoes as Shooting Stars of Ibadan have almost concluded plans to grab the maximum three points at stake against Nasarawa United.
Warri Wolves are also not living any stone unturned to take the bull by its horns against the visiting Wikki Tourists of Bauchi.
The NFF’s spying team is likely to move round some of the venues of the matches to discover more talents for the national teams.
Some of the proposed matches may come alive on the DSTV Supersport on the same day.
