MATCH DAY 13 Preview

The Nigeria National League returned last week with Matchday 12 fixtures. 19 matches were played across the four conferences with 45 goals scored. 3 away wins were recorded, with Abia Comets maintaining a 7 match unbeaten record, most likely the longest ever by any team in the league. Only one draw was recorded.In Week 13, teams are going to strive to consolidate their stands on the table.

Conference A

1472 vs Edel : 1472 is not finding the league environment very comfortable as they struggled for better part of the first stanza. They lost last week, to a fellow Lagosian club Smart City FC. but this week, they will try to make a statement against Edel who defeated Beyond Limit last week.

Stommers vs Smart City : The Abeokuta Stommers could not hold their own in Uyo last week, as they fell by two goals to nil to Dakkada FC. This weekend against Smart City, they would strive to squeeze some points out from the home team. *Coal City vs Dakkada:* Coal City lost to Rovers last weekend in Calabar, but this weekend, they will be all out to pick the maximum points at home against Dakkada.

Abia Comets vs Rovers:

The rave of the moment Abia Comets of Umuahia, last weekend carried their first stanza six matches unbeaten to Uyo , to extinguish their host Vandrezzer FC by two goals to one. This Week, Coach Kevin Ejeh and his boys will unleash their arsenal on Rover of calabar at the Umuahia Township stadium. The Umuahia boys may likely extend their unbeaten runs by one at the end of proceedings.

Madiba vs Vandrezzer: The Lions from Uyo are visiting a terrain that is not too friendly in winning at this period. Playing highly informed Madiba FC who Whitewashed Ekiti at home last week is a bad market for Vandrezzer.

Beyond Limit Vs Ekiti Utd :Ekiti United are taking a redemption trip to Remo stadium against Beyond Limit. The Bet9ja boys will do everything possible to pick the maximum points in this match.

Conference B

Gateway vs Warri Wolves : Gateway returned from Chukwuka Soludo state with a point in their kitty against Solution FC last week. This weekend, they will have their hands full against Warri Wolves, who will be eager to make a name in Abeokuta this weekend.

Inter Lagos vs Solutions: Losing to Osun United last week, International Lagos would not want to drop a point against Solution FC in Lagos this weekend. The Soludo boys may return home empty after proceeding.

FC Rocket One vs Osun United: FC Rocket One are in for a strong battle against Osun United at home. The Seye Ajayi tutored boys from Ataoja town are eager to return to their way again, and will give their host a run for their money.

Ikorodu City vs Ijebu Utd: High flying Ikorodu City, will surely take Ijebu United to the slaughter this weekend. However, they would have to be careful, as the United team can be a hard nut atimes. *Giants Brilla vs Crown:* Crown will be travelling to Enugu to confront their host with only a mission in mind, and that’s”anything can happen”. If they drop a point at home last weekend, same can also happen elsewhere. So, the Brilliant boys should expect a big fight from the Ajilete boys.

Conference C

EFCC vs El-kanemi: This is a very dicey match for the anti graft team. The Warriors are desperately in need of every point to enable them boost their quest to return to NPFL. But, the Abuja based team will not go down to any team easily. They would want to improve on their stand, and leave the red zone. In this match, Elkanemi will have to seek redemption elsewhere, as Coach Kabiru and his boys will take this.

Zamfara vs Yobe Stars: The home team will pick the points in this match. They will want this to improve their stand on the log.

ABS vs Wikki Tourists: This is another match that hold much at stake. A win for the boys from Yankari and a slip for Nasarawa in Abuja may totally change the permutation in the group. The Bukola boys have a lot to play for, as they can not surrender so easily, especially in front of their home fans.

NAF vs Nasarawa United: Nasarawa looks good to pick this in Abuja. However, a slip in the match may rubbish their promotion bid. But, taking the Airforce boys for granted will be a risky business for Nasarawa United.

Conference D

Malumfashi vs City FC: Malumfashi for reasons best known to them, decided to stay away from their match against Sokoto United last week. But, they will face City FC in Kaduna their newly adopted home. City FC still basketing on the euphoria of their home win against Jigawa may take the spirit to Kaduna to pick an away win.

Sporting Supreme vs Sokoto Utd: This match holds much at stake. The leadership of the group will surely be determined after the match at the Bwari Mini Stadium. Sokoto United are group league leader with 18 points, while Sporting Supreme is a point below. Wherever the pendulum will switch, will totally adjust the top standing in the group.

Mailantariki vs Adamawa United:The electricity boys from Abuja will want to redeem themselves this weekend, against Adamawa United. It will be a fight of wits at the Old Parade Ground, Abuja.

Jigawa Golden stars vs Kebbi Utd: Jigawa Golden stars did not have it cool last week in Abuja, as they conceded three first half goals against City FC. Kebbi United on its path, walloped Mailantariki by four goals to one. Jigawa will strive to go all out to pick this one.
