Sunshine Stars Host Enyimba IN NPL Match

Sunshine Stars Football Club of Akure will confront Enyimba International Football Club of Aba in a top Nigeria Premier League rescheduled Week 1 match on Thursday, 13 March, 2014.
Enyimba, who were knocked out of this year’s CAF Champions League in the first round by Malian club, AS Real de Bamako, will attempt to get some succour in the NPL, as they battle Sunshine Stars who have witnessed a handful of departures in their squad in the off-season.
The Akure side did not have the best of pre-season. Just after losing to a team in Ijebu-Ode, they were involved in a road accident with a handful of their players sustaining injuries.
Sunshine Stars finished a distant 12th position and 10 points behind Enyimba, who missed out on a record seventh title by raking up 62 points to finish second and a point behind defending champions, Kano Pillars.
Sunshine Stars ended Enyimba’s ambition of a record seventh league title last season. Goals from Philip Auta and Nigerian international defender, Kunle Odunlami ensured the Stars put a dent on Enyimba’s dream.
In other rescheduled matches, Bayelsa United will lock horns with Sharks in a South-South clash, while Warri Wolves battle El-Kanemi Warriors of Maiduguri also on Thursday.
