Akwa’s Opening Goal was our Tonic says Bosso

In the aftermath of their most recent big win in the Glo Premier League against Akwa United, Coach of title-chasing Bayelsa United, Ladan Bosso suggested that the visiting team’s opening goal was a motivating factor that sent his wards on a goals’ spree. Bayelsa United were 4-1 winners in the Week 25 encounter decided at the Samson Siasia Stadium in Yenegoa on Wednesday.
Former Kaduna United striker, Buhari Jafar scored a brace for the former Nigerian champions while a goal each from Malian Gindo Abdoulaye and Diri Otimoti completed the routing. Striker, Mfon Udoh’s early strike remained their only goal on the visit.
The result means Bayelsa United remain firmly on the second spot on the log with 42 points, same as leaders, Kano Pillars but on inferior goals though the Pyramid City side have a game at hand.

Warri Wolves v Enyimba (Warri City Stadium)

This is without a doubt the pick of this Match-day. The first clash this season ended goalless in Aba. Both teams are in the top five and have some of the best players this season in Bishop Onyeudo and Oghenekaro Etebo among others. It is very likely this contest will produce a number of key individual battles on the pitch.


The Port Harcourt Side Say They Will Not Help Their City Rivals

Vice chairman of Dolphins supporters club, Prince Prezi Difa says Sharks should look elsewhere for their salvation and stop hoping on Dolphins as the Port Harcourt derby holds on Wednesday.
Difa said today that Sharks should not depend on Dolphins to get out of relegation zone as they will not spare their visitors at the Liberation Stadium tomorrow.
“Every time Sharks are in trouble they want us to help them. The truth is we did not put them in the condition they are in so they should not expect us to get them out of it,” Difa said.

Glo Premier League Player Focus

Emmanuel Ariwa made the difference in the most talked about fixture of the 2013 Glo League season, striking home the lone goal that gave Akwa United the three points and a leap off the relegation zone. But the goal had more significance for Ariwa than many would have thought at the Dan Anyiam Stadium in Owerri that Wednesday evening.
Ariwa transferred to Akwa United mid-season from Niger Tornadoes but the match was a home coming for the leggy defender who obviously loves to look trendy given his yuppy appearance in his dyed blown hair. "Bros, leave my hair style makes me confident on and off the field".
