The Oluyole Warriors, Shooting Stars Football Club of Ibadan will this evening at the main bowl of the Lekan Salami Stadium Adamasingba play host to Kano Pillars for a rescheduled Week 3 fixture which did not hold following Pillars CAF Champions League engagement it eventually lost.
I plan to be at the stadium to provide live reports and special coverage of the match. So, follow me on Twitter.
Shooting Stars are at the bottom of the 20-team table with four points from seven games with two matches at hand in the seven-week old Nigerian top flight.
3SC goalkeeper, Kola Ige, said 3SC needs the three points to improve its rating on the league table.
Ige said his side has done good home work for the clash hoping that everything will turn out as planned today.
“We need the three points, but the fact that Pillars has lost a couple of matches will make the encounter difficult for both sides.
“We’ve trained very hard for the clash and we fervently pray everything turns out perfect for us on the match day (today).
“Our position is not good at the moment so we can’t afford to lose any game not even on the home ground.
“So we’re condemned to win no matter how tough Kano Pillars turn out to be in the encounter,” said Ige.
