Glo Premiership going to the wire

26 October 2015, 11:49Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - The Glo Premier League (GPL), which is heading for a photo finish, resumes on Wednesday after breaking over the weekend to accommodate international matches.

Log leaders Enyimba host relegation-troubled Kwara United while second placed Warri Wolves will travel to 14th positioned Lobi Stars.

Enyimba leads the 20-team Premiership log standings with 62 points from 34 matches played while close rivals Wolves have 59 points from the same number of games.

There are only four league matches left before the Premiership curtains come down as pressure to win the Glo premiership title intensifies.

Both sides cannot afford to slip in their remaining matches if they wish to win the championship, which promises to be taken up to the wire.

Elsewhere, third positioned Wikki Tourists, still with a chance to claim the title, will be away to fourth placed Giwa FC.

Both have 57 points but separated by goal difference.

Fifth placed Sunshine Stars will be away to 18th positioned Akwa United, who will be fighting tooth and nail to escape relegation at the end of the season while sixth placed Nasarawa United will be away to second from bottom FC Tarab.

Relegation bound Bayelsa United will be hosting the newly transformed Abia Warriors, who are on eighth position while ninth placed Kano Pillars entertain 11th positioned Rangers.

Tenth-placed 3SC travel to Sharks, 12-positioned FC Ifeanyiubah host Heartland while 17th Dolphins will battle out with 13th placed El-Kanemi Warriors at their home ground.

All matches kick off at 1700 hours.

This past weekend, the national women’s Under-20 team beat South Africa 2-1 1 in the first leg match of the 2016 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Qualifiers while the senior men’s team drew nil-all away to Burkina Faso in an African Nations Championship (CHAN) 2016 qualifier.

However, Nigeria qualified for the tournament scheduled for Rwanda, following their 2-0 home victory.
