Lagos - It promises to be a battle of promotion-thirsty
clubs when second placed Mighty Jets Football Club host old rivals, Niger
Tornadoes in Jos, as the Nigeria National League (NNL) 2013/14 season enters week
12 this weekend.
The Tin City club is two points behind Division A leaders, Wikki
Tourists which has 21 points and will welcome backbenchers DSS of Kaduna in
Bauchi. This is why Jets will try to fly over Tornadoes no matter the
turbulence in the sky in Jos to maintain stability and land safely.
Another cracker will be the encounter between third placed
Abuja-based Spotlight FC which will host Kwara United FC working hard to return
to the elite division following their relegation last season. The Afonja Warriors
has been talking tough ahead of the tie.
Meanwhile, all eyes will be on the star match of Division B
between promotion-chasing Shooting Stars and Gabros International at the
Adamasingba Stadium, Ibadan. Both teams are desperate to go back to premiership
football where they once held sway hence they will fight to the last whistle
for the three points at stake.
In Lagos, the age-long rivalry between First Bank and
Stationary Stores will be rekindled when both square up at the impressive Agege
Stadium. Both clubs need the three points at stake as anything short of victory
will hurt their ambition to gain promotion at the end of the season.
Elsewhere, second placed Abia Comets will have their hands
full when they visit Uyo to engage not too impressive Akwa Starlets even as
Coach Augustine Eguavoen handled Bendel Insurance, placed third on the log will
welcome Remo Stars in Benin- City for another tough match.
