NPFL: Anthony Okpotu back fit again for Lobi Stars


Injured Super Eagles striker Anthony Okpotu has resumed training with his NPFL side Lobi stars after injury ruled him out for few weeks.

Okpotu who had a decent run for Super Eagles Team at the recently concluded African Nation championship in Morocco has not kicked a ball this season for the Benue State side.

The 24-year-old striker who emerged top goalscorer in the Nigeria Professional Football League last season with 19 goals netted twice for Nigeria at the CHAN tournament in Morocco.

The ‘Pride of Benue’ confirmed his resumption via their twitter handle on Thursday night.

“@LobiStars all-time scorer, @LMCNPFL Top Scorer last term & @NGSuperEagles star, @ToniOkpotu has resumed training. #WeAreLobi (1/2).”

Lobi stars recorded the only away win on matchday 11 of the NPFL which catapulted the team to second spot on the league table with 20 points from 11 games.
