As the Nigeria Professional Football League enters week 7 this weekend, there are surely promises of some entertaining fixtures.
In Owerri, Heartland FC who just returned to the top flight will continue in their quest to secure the three maximum points when they host fellow strugglers, Kwara United of Ilorin at the Dan Anyiam Stadium, Owerri.
Interestingly, both teams who are making a return to the premier league have not been finding life here very rosy.A�A�A�
FC Ifeanyi Ubah will have their hands full when they travel to Markurdi to confront Lobi Stars in another cracker that promises to live up to the billing.
Nasarawa United will be at home against visiting Yobe Desert Stars while there will be another of such fixture when Katsina United ambush Niger Tornedoes in Katsina.
In Port Harcourt, there will be an interesting derby as Rivers United host fellow homers, Go Round FC. This match is expected to be of high pitch given the fact that his will be the first clash of the two sister clubs in the elite league fixture.
Elsewhere, there is the Oriental derby when Abia Warriors host Rangers International at the Umuahia Township Stadium. This match will be a must win for both sides given their not too impressive run since the start of the season.
El-Kanemi Warriors of Maiduguri will be at home for Enyimba International while defending champions, Plateau United will host Sunshine Stars of Akure while Kano Pillars will entertain last seasona��s runners- up, MFM in Jos.
