It is desperate times indeed for Globacom Premier League clubs as the season gradually winds down.
Today across the country, teams in Group A will play their penultimate match of the season. Contenders for the season ending Super-Four play offs and those battling to escape the drop to the lower league face must win matches.
Dolphins FC of Port Harcourt, the 2004 double champions are away to Rangers International of Enugu at their newly adopted home ground, Gabros International FC Stadium, Nnewi.
The tie is a must win for Dolphins if their aspirations of making the play offs are to be realised.
Dolphins’ hopes were dealt a deadly blow when fellow rivals, Wikki Tourists beat Ranchers Bees away in a rescheduled match to leapfrog them.
Now, Dolphins must win their remaining two matches beginning from today and hope that Wikki Tourists falter in either of their games.
Unfortunately, today’s points are equally very important to Rangers. They have to win to guarantee the security of their position in the premiership.
Thus, Dolphins players must double their efforts and be ready to give their all if they must take something from the match.
Group A leaders, Kwara United will face Kano Pillars away, while second placed Wikki are guests to hopeless Julius Berger in Abeokuta.
On the wrong side of the table, Berger is already confirmed for relegation, while El-kanemi, Rangers, Insurance, Bayelsa United and Ranchers Bees must get good results today and the remaining fixture to be safe.
Yesterday, Group B teams played their week 17 matches, a fixture that would prove decisive in the race for the group’s play-off ticket and relegation battles.
