Rivers United, Enyimba return to the NPFL after their continental engagement

Rivers United and Enyimba will return to the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) on match-day 12, after their engagement on the continent.

The two teams clashed in the last round of qualifiers for a place in the CAF Confederations Cup group stage and Enyimba triumphed in the two-legged affair via penalty kicks, after the matches ended 1-1 on aggregate.

Rivers United will travel to Delta State Polytechnic Ozoro Sports Complex for a date against Warri Wolves on Wednesday, with other nine games to be played across the country in the NPFL midweek fixtures.

Warri Wolves suffered a heavy defeat in their last NPFL outing against Abia Warriors, where they lost 4-1 in Okigwe.

In head-to-head statistics, Rivers United have won all four NPFL matches against Warri Wolves and the Seasiders have only managed to score once in those four matches.

Enyimba, on the other hand, will host Akwa United at the Enyimba International Stadium, Aba. Akwa United will be going to Aba after a win against Plateau United at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo.

Other Games

In Ilorin, Kwara United will hope to maintain their lead at the top of the league table when they host Abia Warriors at the Kwara Township stadium.

This is on the back of suffering their first defeat in the league since January 10; when they lost 1-0 away to Enugu Rangers. It was the first loss in seven games.

In Kaduna, Kano Pillars will hope to quickly get back on the winning path, after losing 1-0 to Lobi Stars in Makurdi, when they host Gbenga Ogunbote’s Sunshine Stars.
