Katsina United who suffered a narrow defeat to Kwara United 1 – 0 in Ilorin last weekend will hope to return to winning ways when they trade tackles against NPFL current champions on Sunday.

Lobi Stars who recorded another disappointing result at home in their last match against relegation threatening Niger Tornadoes 2 – 2, will go to this encounter with the hope of getting positive result.

Coach Abdullahi Biffo team has already dropped two points at home this season against the table toppers MFM FC and will do everything possible in this game to ensure that the maximum points is amassed knowing that any results other winning might see them drop to the relegation zone

The Makurdi team will also throw everything into this game in order to avoid defeat as losing to Katsina United on Sunday will further complicate their woes of survival.

Katsina United will still bank on their star players like; Tasiu Lawal, Lukman Muhammed, Destiny Ashadi, Usman Barau and Martins Usule who scored the team only goal in the first leg in Makurdi to fire them to victory on Sunday.

Coach Biffo told National Daily that his team target in this crunch tie is the three points.

“Yes, I know is going to be a tough game, Lobi Stars are the league champions and I am sure they will come all out to get point here just like we did in Makurdi but we are not ready to sacrifice any of our points again. He declared
