Lagos - Last weekend, the Glo Premier League entered the
round 20. The formation chosen by News24 for the Team of the Week is a 4-3-3
The young goal tender ensured his side kept a clean sheet
and helped his team to a 0-0 draw against Wikki Tourists. Made three
point-blank saves towards the end of the match in Bauchi.
Odinga Odinga [Sharks
The full back helped his side to a 2-1 victory over Warri
Wolves. He tested defensively and wasn't contented with his defensive duties.
He attacked when needed.
Chinonso Udeh [FC
Chinonso was calm and helped his side earn a crucial victory
against Sunshine Stars, keeping a clean sheet in the process. It was a positive
performance from the defender who repelled them.

He may not be the quickest but Salomon Junior is a pretty
effective defender. Has good positional sense and seems to enjoy the challenge
of coming up against physical strikers. Also managed to get on the score sheet.
Ike ThankGod [Abia
The rocky defender put in a typically solid performance and
helped his side earn a draw against Ifeanyi Uba FC. He showed why he is one of
the best in the land.
It’s been a surprisingly poor season so far for the
midfielder but against Enyimba he looked to be getting some form back. Was
heavily involved during the match in Aba.
Rabiu Ali [Kano
Showed tactical awareness and understanding that gave Lobi
Stars series of problems. Playing as a holding midfielder he made a number of
interventions and recovery runs to help keep the Pride of Benue at bay for the
majority of the match. The Nigeria international scored the first goal of the
match for his team.
An impressive display from the midfielder. Played a largely
defensive role as his side looked to play a counter attacking game in their
match with Shooting Stars, but was also instrumental in starting moves and
carrying the ball forward. Very good at winning the ball from Shooting Stars
midfielders and deceptively quick when running with it.
Aniekpeno Udoh [Akwa
A constant threat to the Bayelsa United defense. Dropped
deep to initiate attacks for his side and also looked to run in beyond the
Restoration Boys backline. Scored a last-gasp equalizer for his team goal.
Charles Henlong [Giwa
The skipper ran his socks off for his side against Kwara
United, pressing the Harmony Warriors defence line whenever he got the chance
and holding up the ball well. Was rewarded for his endeavour with the solitary
goal of the game.
Egwim was the star of the round. Dolphins' man
for goals on match day scored a treble. He reacted sharply to a pass from Omoh
Johnson before netting the equalizer for the Pride of Rivers. The fair skinned
forward poked home from a rebound for his second goal. He completed his
hat-trick two minutes to the hour mark.
