Lobi Stars head into this weekend’s game against Abia Warriors looking to maintain a perfect home record so far in the Nigeria Professional Football League season.

Kabiru Dogo’s wards are unbeaten in their last five games which keeps the momentum going as the boss mulls over whether to make changes this weekend.

We’ve had a go at naming the side Dogo could go with.

GK – Mustapha Aliko

Former Niger Tornadoes number one is still the best all round goalkeeper that Lobi Stars have available. He should replace Moses Ocheje in the starting line up.

RB – John Lazarus

John Lazarus will head into this game as the automatic choice to start.

CB – Alex Aghahowa

Aghahowa was in good form in Enugu and will be a key player should Abia Warriors try and hit Lobi Stars over the top.

CB – Moses Tsehuan

Seems to have grown in confidence from his display against Rangers.

LB – Ebube Duru

Duru offers pace down the left hand side and provides a good outlet for the midfield should the middle become congested.

CM – Duke Osimaga

Osimaga looks at home as the defensive shield and is well suited to cutting in and getting involved in the central play.

CM – Douglas Achiv

Lobi Stars fans should feel happy to see Achiv start. He works his socks off.

AM – Samuel Mathias

Mathias ability to work box-to-box doesn’t need to be sold. He is always a threat from set pieces.

RW – Thomas Zenke

Played well against Rangers last week. He offers complete control when he’s in possession.

LW – Austin Ogunye

It would be harsh from Dogo not to keep him in the team following a strong performance against Dakkada and Rangers.

ST – Chinonso Okonkwo

Okonkwo should start up front after Ossy Martins red card at the Cathedral. He’s not a bad replacement to have.
