NNL: Bayelsa United Target First Away Victory Of the Season

By Hananeel Jackson

The battle for a place in the Nigeria Professional Football League NPFL returns this weekend across different centers in the Nigeria National League NNL apart from Umuahia where Abia Comets are drawn bye.

Top of the fixture in matchday eight in the southern conference, group B2 is the encounter between Holy Arrows of Ole and former league champions Bayelsa United at the Ole township stadium, Delta State on Saturday.

Last Sunday, Bayelsa United beat Abia Comets two- nil to move to  fourth place on the log with ten points having registered three wins, two loses, and one draw, closely followed by Crown Fc of Ogbomosho who have eleven points after six games, while Remo Stars and Ibom Youth occupy first and second positions.

On the other hand, Holy Arrows have only garnered two points from six games and are currently rock bottom of group B2 without a win with same number of matches played.

Elsewhere, Third placed Crown fc will welcome leaders Remo Stars of Ikenne, as Ibom Youth Fc who occupy second spot travel to Lagos to face Joy Cometh Fc while Bendel insurance at the refurbished Samuel Ogbemudia will entertain Fc One Rocket of Abat, Akwa Ibom state.

The Delta state derby will see Julius Atete at Otujeremi stadium, Ughelli against NNL debutants, Apex Krane of Agbor.

With Remo Stars currently top of group B2 of the southern conference of the Nigeria National League, technical adviser of Bayelsa United Dipreye Teibowei says getting the maximum points against Holy Arrows will psyche up his team before their game against Gateway Fc at home.

Coach Teibowei expressed confidence that his lads would come out strong against the faith based side tomorrow.
