NPFL MD14: Lobi Stars Brace Up For Leadership Takeover Against MFM
Lobi Stars Football Club will try MFM Football Club for size inside the main bowl of the Aper Aku Stadium in a bid to take over leadership of the league in one of the matchday 14 fixtures of the 209/20 NPFL, Bestchoicesports.com.ng can report
There is no gainsaying the fact that the fixtures for match day 14 are tight and very difficult to predict as all the first 4 teams on the table will not know peace until the final whistle for the games.
In as much as MFM also pose a difficult challenge to Lobi Stars, on paper, The pride of Benue are favoured to carry the day as they are yet to drop a home point neither have they concede a goal at home, with such stunning home record, I wonder how MFM will be able to surmount this larger than life home pedigree of The Glory to Glory boys. On the pecking order of standing on the league table, MFM seemed to be the weakest among the first 6 teams and the only in the interface fixtures of title contenders of day 14 with lower than 20 points, certainly are not in the class of stopping Lobi Stars from prolonging the home record.
Plateau United that have maintained a steady lead now have Lobi Stars and Rivers United as joint league leaders safe technicalities as they suffered a costly defeat in the hands of Katsina United in match day 13 are receiving the biggest threat of the moment Akwa United as their guest in Jos. Akwa United remains the only club that have so far earned 15 maximum points from 5 games uninterrupted and seemed to be having a good time at the moment and may deny Plateau United maximum points to the advantage of Lobi Stars.
Rivers United will be in Uyo to face revelation of the NPFL 2019/2020 season (Dakkada FC), having earned 12 points in their last 4 games uninterrupted may put up a spirited fight but likely be slowed down by their host.
In the final comparative analysis, Lobi Stars are more likely to emerge league leaders after today’s games as they have more chances of getting away with maximum points than any other of the title contenders.
Speaking to Lobi Stars Media, The Executive Vice Chairman of Lobi Stars Mr Mike Idoko Okpe charged the players and technical crew to up their game, consolidate on the gains of the away win of match day 13 and take a comfortable lead. He also maintain the call for prayers from all well wishers of Lobi Stars as the God factor remains sacrosanct.
