Plateau United (2nd)
Last five matches: WLWLL
The Tin City Boys have had a tough path in their quest to challenge River United to the NPFL trophy, they have failed to earn a point away from home in four tries and that has kept them on seven points below the league leaders.
They stumbled on another away defeat on matchday 27 as Nasarawa United recorded a (2-1) victory over them.
They have picked up six points in the last five matches both home and away and that's very bad for a team challenging for the title.
They are the only team in the league to have won all their thirteen matches at home this season, that's an impressive record, nonetheless, their away form needs to change if at all they want to contest with the league leader.
Wikki Tourist (9th)
Last five matches: DWDLW
The Giant Elephants have lost just once in the last five matches and have scored five goals while conceding two in those encounters. They are eight points above the relegation zone and seven points within reach of playing continental football next season. Realistically, it will be very hard for them to play in CAF competition next season as teams above them aren't ready to drop unnecessary points.
They won against Dakkada FC on matchday 26 as goals from each half ensured the points were theirs.
They have picked up eight points in the last five matches both home and away.
Away from home this season, they have earned seven points in thirteen matches with two wins, a draw and ten losses.
