Glo trio to contest relegation battle

09 November 2015, 06:56Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - With the winners of the Glo Premiership now confirmed, the spotlight shifts to the wrong end of the table where the final team to be relegated is yet to be confirmed.

Enyimba have won the title after amassing an unassailable 69 points while Kwara United, Taraba and Bayelsa United have been relegated.

The fourth team to join the trio out of the elite league will be confirmed this weekend.

Sharks, Akwa United and Dolphins are the three teams that will be involved in a relegation scrapheap as the curtain comes down the Premiership on Sunday.

Sharks (42 points), which occupies the last relegation spot, needs nothing less than maximum points when they travel to Abia Warriors.

Akwa also have to win their final encounter against Lobi Stars to ensure survival as a draw might not be enough to secure survival in the event that Sharks claim maximum points.

Like Akwa, Dolphins also have 44 points also need an outright win to confirm survival as either of the two teams below can leapfrog them to safety if they win their games and Dolphins lose away to Shooting Stars on Sunday.

The relegated side joins Kwara, Taraba and Bayelsa to the unfashionable world of the Nigeria National League.

Meanwhile, Enyimba are the new champions after a top-of-the-table clash against second-placed Warri Wolves ended goalless.

They have an unassailable number of points and their last match against Sunshine Stars will only be a mere fulfillment of fixtures.

The battle to finish second nonetheless is hotting up with Wolves and three other sides-Giwa United, Nassarawa and Wikki Tourist- in contention.

However the latter two only have a mathematical chance and have to score at least 20 goals to finish second in the event Wolves lose their final encounter against relegated Taraba.

Wolves a healthy goal difference of 29, the best in the league, and 63 points. They have the same number of points with Giwa who have an inferior difference of 5. A draw thus will confirm Wolves as the runners-up and a place in the continental Confederations Cup.

Nasarawa and Wikki are on 60 points.
