Leading scorer Junior Lokosa will be at the centre of spearheading Kano Pillars’ chase on Lobi when they play hosts to FC Ifeanyiubah on Wednesday. With 12 goals in 13 appearances, Lokosa is the hottest man in the country at the moment and the odds that he will get among the goals remain higher ahead of this matchday.
Lokosa is a man on a mission and keeps delivering the goods for his club though the last time out at Kwara United his goal proved insufficient in their 2-1 defeat at the Kwara State Sports Complex in Ilorin.
Three other matches will take place this gameweek in Port Harcourt, Enugu and Lafia. Rivers United play at home against fourth-from-bottom Heartland while seven-time champions Rangers go up against the highest-placed promoted side Yobe Stars.
At the Lafia City Stadium, Nasarawa United will hope they can improve their standing in the log against sixth-placed Katsina United.
