The introduction of TV in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) have brought lots of positives to not just the body, but clubs participating in the league.
Since the inception of Npfl.tv, we have seen away teams pick points or win away, Heartland picked a point in Aba against Enyimba, Wikki picked a point against Rivers Untied in Portharcourt and Kano Pillars got maximum points away from home against Ifeanyi Ubah.
Kano Pillars Vs Akwa United over the past few years have proven to be a tough clash. In 2017, the Promise Keepers won one nil at the Sani Abacha Stadium against Kano Pillars, at the end resulting in a brawl.
This game, being a top of the table clash, Tv will help put checks and balances as match officials will be at their best form, “kale” a phrase for corruption will not be easy.
The best two teams so far will be able to show the world why they have been grinding out results with their display televised to millions around the world.
Lastly, Kano Pillars so far are unbeaten at home and a team like Akwa United who are unbeaten in 16 matches are favourites to break the record, hence the need for TV, so as not to miss history.
