News24 NPFL Team Of The Week 30

22 September 2015, 12:24

Lagos - With the top five clubs not changing positions on another exciting Nigeria Professional Football League weekend, News24 selects the best XI from Week 30.

Ikechukwu Ezenwa [Sunshine Stars]

Kept Kwara United at bay with a string of superb and vital saves especially a point blank stop on Segun Alebiosu's effort. Continued his stunning saves in the second half playing a massive part in the win.

Moses Bunde [Lobi Stars]

A thoroughly modern day full-back display saw him always involved in delivering dangerous crosses to the opposition's half. It was an outstanding display from him.

Zaharadeen Bello [Kano Pillars]

Looking like he had never been away he seemed to be everywhere. Patrolling the centre, pushing down the territory, plus covering for his team mates when they moved upfield. At times left the Anambra Warriors looking like elephants on stilts.

Ayinde Kabiru [Sunshine Stars]

The former Kwara United central defender worked well in tandem with Ebenezer Odunlami and cleared up several of his former team's forays with good solid tackling and positioning which made any of the home team's attacks look worthless. He was reliable and didn't put any foot wrong at the back.

Agbaji Anthony [Lobi Stars]

The rugged defender ruled the back-four and was always there to present an outlet if needed. Made several punishing runs into the hosts' half but never once allowed his probing to deflect from his tackles and interceptions. Exceptional.

Dare Ojo [Kwara United]

Caused problems for the visitors throughout and scored the opener on the counter with a fabulous curler into the far corner from the edge of the box. Continued to trouble and almost got another goal for himself in the second stanza. His 5th goal of the season was typical of him, a bullet to the roof of the net. Menacing.

Efe Yarhere [Elkanemi Warriors]

Full of running and prompting, he was at the fulcrum of Elkanemi Warriors' almost-constant attacks. Constantly looking for a killer pass, he was rewarded when he got on the end of a swift attack as he scored for the hosts against Enyimba FC at the Karkanda Stadium.

Henry Ochuba [Abia Warriors]

A real pedigree performance by the Abia Warriors midfielder, who was always alert to the half chance. Got possession, put his foot on the ball and also scored with a perfect finish.

Omoh Johnson [Dolphins]

Like a troublesome wasp he was always looking to hurt where he could, setting up attacks and finishing them off. On one swift counter-attacking sting he found himself in space to side-foot home the first goal. His two assists were simply excellent.

Prince Aggrey [Sunshine Stars]

Like an angry baboon, he was relentless when attacking Kwara United defence and producing two assists. He set up Dayo Ojo for number one with a fine pass and did the same to Sunday Emmanuel. Persistent.

Godbless Asamoah [Dolphins FC]

He was a real thorn in the side of the visitors. Starting from the whistle he pushed to get on the score sheet with several notable efforts before his well-deserved brace. Unrelenting.
