Glo Premiership Team Of The Week 29

16 September 2015, 18:20

Lagos - News24 selects the best XI from an exciting Week 29 Glo Premier League fixtures.

Godwin Paul [Wikki Tourists]

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.

Emmanuel Makama [Nasarawa United]

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.

Ifeanyi Anaemena [Enyimba FC]

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 Tourists]

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.

Zaharadeen Bello [Kano Pillars]

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 back.

Boris Konan [FC Taraba]

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 United]

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.

Esosa Igbinoba [Nasarawa United]

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 Wolves]

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.

Okiki Afolabi [Sunshine Stars]

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 United]

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.
