Abia Warriors (8th)
Last five games: WLLWD
The Pride of Abia head here with a (2-2) share of the spoils against Bayelsa United on the road. They scored twice after the break but couldn’t hold on as the hosts scored twice in five minutes. It was a decent result but not a great display from them. Abia Warriors currently occupy the 8th position on the log, with sixteen points from a combined thirty-three.
Interestingly, Abia Warriors have a perfect home record so far this season, and Coach Erasmus Onuh’s side will look to keep that record running. Their optimism was boosted with the return of some key players from injury who are likely to be on parade.
Sporting Lagos (10th)
Last five games: WLDLW
After three games without a win, the Noisy Lagosians bounced back with a victory over Katsina United. The visitors had a tough time; however, they protected their early lead and got the maximum points. Sporting Lagos have lost their previous four away games and might not survive relegation this season. Sporting Lagos have picked up fifteen points in their last eleven games, scoring eleven and conceding eight.
