3SC, Wikki eye premier league spots

11 August 2014, 17:33

Lagos - All the home teams won their matches as the Nigerian National League (NNL) season gradually enters a crucial stage where any margin of error could do damage to the team’s ambitions to either gain promotion to the elite cadre or drop to the amateur rank.

With this scenario in mind, the table toppers in the two divisions of the NNL ensured that they maintain the status quo as Wikki Tourists of Bauchi despite dropping three points after a 1-0 loss to TEAP Football Club in Abuja still lead Division A with 41 points, just a point above Kwara United which beat Jigawa Golden Stars 1-0 in Ilorin at the weekend.

In the same vein, Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) walloped rivals Abia Comets 2-0 in Ibadan to perch pretty at the top of Division B with 40 points while second placed Gabros International garnered three points from the home match against Go-Round FC.

However, it will take a miracle for the Nigerian Prisons FC with 16 points out of the possible 69 points after 23 rounds of matches to escape relegation even as Unicem Rovers, Remo Stars and Prime FC of Oshogbo are in danger of being relegated to the lower division also at the end of the season.

Others on the queue as relegation candidates are Stationery Stores FC of Lagos; Go-Round of Omoku; TEAP and FRSC of Abuja. They need to dig deep to prevent the inevitable from happening.
