Jigawa Golden Stars will be looking to their rejuvenating home win against Warri Wolves on Sunday at the Sani Abacha Stadium, Kofar Mata.
Ibrahim Rabiu Tata’s side are currently 18th on the log with 3 points from six games, a game at hand against 2016 champions Rangers Internationals could be very difficult as the flying antelope are desperately in search of their maximum point this season.
The 2019/2020 campaign will go down as a very successful or very disappointing season for the giant Killers if they finish the season at bottom.
There has been little to suggest that the giant-killers are capable of pushing for NPFL status spot this term, though, they still along with work to do if they want to achieve that status at the end of the current campaign
However, Warri Wolves have been excellent in NPFL this season, winning 1, drawing 4 and losing 2 of their 7 matches to sit fourteen on the NPFL Standing, one point clear of their Sunday’s opponent Jigawa Golden Stars, since their return to the top flight this season.
Indeed, a 1-1 home draw to Lobi Stars with Lobi Stars meant that they dropped into 14th spot on the log rather than progressing, level on point with Akwa United who were beaten by MFM FC on Friday in Lagos.
Furthermore, Jigawa Golden Stars cannot afford to dwell on the disappointment, though, and they could move out of the relegation zone with Kwara United in action Heartland in Ilorin.
