Eduwo, Okpotu to miss Rivers Utd clash
Written by Taiwo Adediran on May 20, 2016
Rivers United have received unexpected boost ahead of their crunch match day nineteen Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) clash against Lobi Stars.
Lobi’s influential strikers, Kingsley Eduwo and Anthony Okpotu, will both miss the game that comes up on Sunday at the Aper Aku, Stadium, Makurdi. Both players are suspended having accumulated five yellow cards thus far this term.
Eduwo’s cautions were recorded on match days four, five, eleven, fourteen and eighteen while Okpotu was ticked off on match days one, six, seven, eleven and eighteen.
The two players have proved to be important members of Godwin Uwua’s Lobi Stars with Okpotu particularly in fearsome goal scoring form this season.
Lobi Stars currently sit in sixth place on the NPFL standings with twenty-eight points from eighteen matches while Rivers United are in second with thirty-one points from eighteen games.
