After another weekend full of spills, thrills and goals, Ademetan Abayomi picks his best XI from the Week 2 action.
Olorunleke Ojo – Enyimba
The master of his area won absolutely everything in the air. Ojo was always in the right position to make the others look incidental. Commanding.
Taye Muritala – Wikki Tourists
Put in several threatening crosses and was effective. Prominent.
Adekunle Adeleke – Enyimba
What a superb signing Adeleke has turned out to be. Always in control with power and an intelligence that foreclosed any danger before it got to be anywhere near threatening. Dominant.
Dennis Nya – Akwa United
The pick of the defence, won all his aerial battles with absolute determination. Influential.
Daniel Itodo – Plateau United
Patrolled the left flank and gave Kwara United warning of his potency. Athletic.
Rafiu Ishaq – Rivers United
Tested Godsgift Elkanah and Adamu Abubakar on several occasions. He grabbed a brace. Worked very well with his teammates and also set up Chijioke Akuneto’s goal. Impressive.
Ubong Essien – Akwa United
Essien is best known for his defensive qualities but he did a lot of great work helping the defence against Shooting Stars. Energetic.
Duke Osimaga – Lobi Stars
The promising midfielder dictated the play in the middle of the ground, showing maturity beyond his years. Efficient.
Philip Ozor – Enyimba
Once again brilliant with several defence-splitting passes and a cracking assist. Outstanding.
Andy Okpe – Remo Stars
Always menacing and hit Heartland like Tsunami. He threatened and ruthlessly exploited the Naze Millionaires with a brace. Industrious.
Paul Samson – Abia Warriors
Samson was sharpness personified and consistently worried the Sunshine Stars defence with a superb winner. Determined.
