Lobi Stars Football Club of Makurdi will host title-chasers Nasarawa United at the Aper Aku stadium for the second 2020-2021 NPFL North Central derby this Wednesday, July.
Lobi Stars will renew hostilities against a familiar Nasarawa United in one of 2020/2021 Matchday 34 that could have an impact on the title race.
Nasarawa United will go into the game second on the table and a win for them will boost their hope of winning the Nigeria professional football league title.
Lobi Stars on their part will be playing with a record tag of keeping the best home result in the current season, having run 23 Matchdays without dropping a home point.
Lobi Stars cannot afford to drop a home point as this is their last consequential game. If Lobi Stars achieve victory today, they will certainly not need any other point again out of the 4 remaining games to stay safe from the drop zone.
On the other hand, Nasarawa United seems to set the game as their proximity target with the hope of making premium from the forgoing advantages thereof, and would not leave any stone unturned to pull out a favorable result from the derby.
Nasarawa United is currently second on the league table with just three points below Akwa United’s 61, and they are desperate to pick an away game to secure their continental ticket.
Though Lobi Stars may be looking unperturbed on the table occupying the 8th position on the log with 50 points, pride and professionalism is at stake in the game under preview.
