Lagos - News24 select the best 11 players who were
exceptional in the Glo Premier League week 25 fixtures.
Kazeem Yekeen [Kwara
The former Bayelsa United goalie was on form and Shooting
Stars were left frustrated by his heroics. They found goals harder to come by
than truffles in a thousand-acre woodland. He made three saves on one-on-one
situations and also stopped Tope Orelope's spot-kick. In the second half he
saved several goal-worthy efforts; especially a free-kick from Muyiwa Lawal in
the injury time.
Like a young barber cutting the hair of the Roma homeless
via the Pope's blessing, he was an optimistic volunteer and played well.
Comprehensive in attack and defence, he crucially cut out the dangerous Rangers
Played a captain's game by leading at the back. Controlled
Pillars' attackers with relative ease. The former Giwa FC defender did well to
retain his composure when Pillars were dominating and pushing for a vital
equalizer. He made a couple of well-timed clearances that would have surely
otherwise resulted in goals.

Controlled the centre of the pitch, protecting his
goalkeeper with several decisive interventions later in the match. Never
allowed the opposition forwards any hold on the game and played solidly
Lawal Shittu [Giwa
Another classic performance from the full back. Added to the
attack while also commanding the left flank, making sure the hosts made no
headway down his side.
Paul Onobi [Sunshine
The defensive midfielder caused Elkanemi Warriors plenty of
problems and his first half strike set the ball rolling in the massacre. He
added a second in the second half. Always a threat he put on a man of the match
Kept the away side busy, creating problems in the heart of
their defence. Always looking to generate something; his guile played a big
part in helping Enyimba grab three points.
Yaro Bature [Nasarawa
Was always there to receive the ball, taking risks and
looking for openings. He found space for himself after he was spotted by Ubale
to score the second goal in Kano.
Playing on the right the Kwara Feeders product caused problems
and his perfect shot was spilled to the path of Ismail Gata who scored the only
goal of the match. He continued to be a positive influence and saw his
thunderous strike hit the woodwork in the second half.
A top performance, he pushed for a goal and was rewarded for
his hard work when he scored the first goal before setting up Yaro Bature for
his team's second goal against his former employers.
As usual he was a thorn in the backside of the opposition as
he launched himself at everything like a love-struck teenager. His first goal
was brilliant while he also occupied the defenders for his second goal.For
