Lagos - News24 picks the 11 players that stood out in the
match day 14 of the Glo Premier League.
Sani Haliru - Wikki
The former Kano Pillars man made series of stunning saves to
deny Ifeanyi FC attackers as his side stole the three points in Sunday's
encounter. More performances like this and he'll surely be part of the Super
Eagles' home-based squad.
Alex Emenike - Enugu
The player put in a consistent show. It was a typically
robust performance in the match against Sunshine Stars, he defended well and
attacked when possible as Rangers looked to hit their opponents on the counter.
His strike was crucial.
Emenike Onuoha - Wikki
Not many would have expected Wikki to come back from the
match against Ifeanyi Uba FC with a point not to talk of three points, but
that’s what they did, they picked the maximum points. With coach Abdul Maikaba
fielding a back four missing, Emenike stood out in particular putting in a
resilient display. The defender was more often than not always in the right

Oke Ogagotewho -
Warri Wolves secured a point at the Nest of Champions with
Oke marshaling the defense expertly and restricting the opponents to just a
couple of chances. A good communicator for his side.
Zikiye Jonathan -
The defender has been a regular in the Dolphins side since
joining them. Was rarely beaten when defending one against one and had a good
running battle with Pillars attackers. His late leveler turned out to be
crucial for the Pride of Rivers.
Saleh Mohammed - Giwa
Showed willingness to attack whenever possible, particularly
in the match where he created a couple of good chances for the Jos Elephants.
One of his forays was rewarded with a goal. Was not overly troubled in his
defensive duties either.
Ebere Odiche -
Odiche was at the heart of the action in the Naze
Millionaires' 1-1 draw with Sharks. He always drove his team forward throughout
the match at the Sharks Stadium.
Ezekiel Bassey -
Created two assists and generally ran the game for the
People's Elephants in their 2-0 victory over Nasarawa United. Knows when to
slow down the tempo of the game or speed it up. He picked the perfect pass and
put in a shift defensively. Pretty much the perfect all round winger.
Abdulazeez Awakan -
It's good to assume that Awakan is starting to show his true
potentials. Played the full ninety minutes in the home draw against Wolves,
scoring the equaliser. Showed excellent movement throughout the match, drifting
out into wide areas to create space and also dropped deep to support the
Muyiwa Lawal -
''Kokoro'' grabbed his first goal of the NPFL season on
Saturday in fitting style. His stunning free-kick showed his class and quality.
The substitute was the creative spark behind most of 3SC's moves, with the
Taraba defenders unable to handle his dribbling and close control. Makes you
wonder what kind of player he could have been if injuries had not blighted his
Chukwudi Samuel -
The forward put in a good display at the Rojenny Stadium. A
mobile striker, he is particularly good at drifting into wide areas and linking
the play. Scored the all-important winner and put in a solid all round display.
