MFM FC fans will expect the unexpected this season as the team’s entertaining style of football will ensure they aren’t short of drama at the Soccer Temple, with strikers raring to go.
Ebenezer Odeyemi was on song against Warri Wolves last Sunday and his potential start could spark a partnership with the lively Clement Ogwu, adding more firepower to an already strong selection of forwards.
Lobi Stars disappointing 1-0 loss away at FC Ifeanyi Ubah demonstrated a strong possession based philosophy.
The defending of the goal was poor, an area where coach Kabiru Dogo will look to improve, after a series of poor defensive displays last season.
Dogo will feel he can exploit MFM FC’s weaknesses at the back.
The Pride of Benue will be eager to unleash new man Segun Alebiosu, the explosive striker could bring the ideal style to run in behind the creativity of Chukwuka Onuwa.
The game will no doubt provide a great spectacle, with players on both sides capable of causing danger and certainly capable of multiple goals.
