Lagos - News24 selects the best XI from an exciting Week 29
Glo Premier League fixtures.
Godwin Paul [Wikki
The Wikki Tourists goalie showed again why with several
classy saves, blocks and clearances that he is one of the top class custodians
in the domestic scene. In particular his saves to deny Anthony Okpotu and
Abdulrahman Bashir. His alertness in goal for the visitors helped them grab a
draw in Makurdi.
Always alert to any danger, he controlled the opposition
attack efficiently and seemed to be perfectly at home leaving them looking like
they all had taken a tube of tranquilizers at half time and not an energy
drink. Combative display by the full-back.
His super-sub performance against Dolphins earns him a place
in the left-back position. He was always looking for holes in Dolphins' defense
line and was massively rewarded with a bullet of a header beyond the reach of
goalkeeper Rotimi Sunday.

Emenike Onuoha [Wikki
The centre-back was once again able to keep the opponents’
attack at bay, making several key blocks and playing a major role in the
one-all draw against Lobi Stars.
The youth international had Chisom Chikatara under control
for most of the match and deadened any attacks from the visitors with his
positioning. Set up one or two forward moves himself and was a real rock at the
Boris Konan [FC
He scored the only goal of the match in the opening
exchanges. Knew his role with the Pride of Jalingo and played it to perfection,
winning the ball back when necessary and setting up attacks when possible.
Played the simple ball and hardly put a foot wrong.
Samad Kadiri [Bayelsa
He scored a goal and was the architect of most of the good
moves by Bayelsa United on Saturday. In every other aspect of the game his
intelligent passing and setting up of play were excellent.
The livewire of the Solid Miners. You can always count on
the former Lobi Stars midfielder for crucial goals when you need a hand that
was what he did against Sunshine Stars with a brace. It won't be a surprise if
foreign clubs comes calling or the likes of Enyimba and Kano Pillars tries to
poach him away from Lafia.
Joseph Osadiaye [Warri
Continuing his strong form the forward was up for the game
and looked to involve himself in everything. Scored a magnificent goal after
darting from his own half and screaming past two defenders before scoring with
a looping finish.
Once again he impressed with two superb goals while almost
scoring two more. His first strike saw him in the right place to slot home from
close range while his second was unstoppable. Coordinated.
Benard Ovoke [Bayelsa
Ovoke was simply miles ahead of others on match-day. He
caused Elkanemi Warriors defenders all sorts of troubles. Always looking to
hurt, his hat-trick was a true reflection of his contribution to the game.For
