NPFL: Resurgent Pillars face Delta Force as Heartland await unbeaten Plateau Utd



The Match Day 7 of the Nigeria Professional Football League will take place today across the nation with some interesting games to watch.

In Kano, a resurgent Kano Pillars will welcome Delta Force for the first time this season at the Sani Abacha stadium.

It is expected that captain, Rabiu Ali whose return last week helped the Masu Gida end run of 493 minutes in the NPFL without a goal – the club’s longest goal drought since the start of the millennium. He provided the assists for both goals scored by Nyima Nwagua.

Table toppers Plateau United’s hope of remaining undefeated in the league will face a stern test against home side, Heartland.

The former champions have stayed on top of the league table since Matchday 1 will have a side languishing in the bottom four after winning just one of their opening six games.

Akwa United head coach John Obuh is under huge pressure to secure his first league win after his seventh attempt. The Promise Keepers host Adamawa United at the Nest of Champions in a match the former Flying Eagles boss cannot anything less than a win.

Other matches of the day will see Sunshine Stars welcoming Nasarawa United while Katsina United will trade tackles against MFM FC.

Abia Warriors will host high flying Akwa Starlets just as FC Ifeanyiubah will battle Wikki Tourists.

Meanwhile, two games are postponed due to continental engagements involving league champions Enyimba and Rangers.
