Action returns to Lafia City stadium as Nasarawa United hopes to make it
four games without defeat when the Solid miners play host to league leaders
MFMFC in one of the match day 17 fixtures of the Nigerian Professional
Nasarawa United will head into the game brimming with confidence having gone three games without defeat picking points at Lobi stars and recently
in Kano against Pillars.
Adamu Hassan who has hit a rich vein of form this season with 5 goals also netted the equalizer in Kano, will be heavily relied on with the experience of Philip Auta and Thomas Zenke also key if Nasarawa United hopes to halt MFM’s ambition of salvaging anything from the tie.
The Olukoya boys as MFM are fondly called will head into this tie with only
one mission which is to head back to Lagos with the 3 points at stake.
Coach Fidelis Ilechukwu led side were the only side to have done the double
over Nasarawa United on their debut season last season winning the first
leg 2-1 before rounding it off with a 3-0 scoreline in Lagos.
League top scorer, Stephen Odey will be expected to lead the line with support from the ever reliable Onuwa Chukwuka and Sikiru Olatunbosun.
The game will be keenly contested and it is going to be the battle of the midfield with Nasarawa United trio of Eugene Obi, Kadir Aminu and Douglas
Achiv expected to line up in the middle of the park for the Solid Miners.
Whatever happens on match day, the best of NPFL will be seen in Lafia with
Bashir Abdulrahman, Thomas Zenke, Stephen Odey, Onuwa Chukwuka, Austin
Opara primed to light up the prestigious Lafia city stadium.
