With 8 Points from available 27, minus 5 goals deficiency and 19th on the log, Niger Tornadoes are Condemned to pick their 3rd win on Sunday when they host fellow Strugglers, Akwa United in the matchday 10 of the 2024 Nigeria Premier Football League, NPFL in Kaduna.
Coach Hamza Abdul’azeez Abara and and his opposite number, Fatai Osho who previously worked together at Enyimba before pitching tent with their present employers will go head-to-head for the first time as head coaches of their respective teams in this weekend’s match encounter.
The encounter promises to be explosive giving the current position of both teams on the log, while it’s also going to be a tactical battle between the two gaffers who knows each other’s strength and Achilles heel
There would not be any hiding place for the visitors as the hosts are condemned to grab maximum points in this week 10 fixture against Fatai Osho’s side who are also on the muddy water
Tornadoes have played four home matches so far this season, they’ve won two and drew two, the Ikon Allah Boys greatest undoing this term is goal scoring haven conceded zero goal at home thus far season and scoring just two.
The strikers are expected to find their sharpness while the defenders should keep it water tight at back, as has been the case since the beginning of the season.
The Ikon Allah Boys need to be wary of their visitors, the last time out between the two sides Akwa United snatched a slim one nil victory at the National Stadium in Abuja two seasons ago.
