Lekan Salami Stadium (Adamasingba), Ibadan is venue for another showdown as Shooting Stars trade tackles with Enugu Rangers today, Wednesday in Ibadan. 

The match will be live on StarTimes Beta Sports Channel 244 at 5:30 pm, but the stadium is expected to witness a capacity crowd as both teams have strong fans. 

Enugu Rangers will be consolidating their gains recorded in Enugu on Sunday if they secure a win. This will place them firmly at the top of the 2023/24 Nigeria Premier Football League.

However, 3SC is expected to cash in on home advantage and pull a win over Rangers, so as to improve their final result standing. 

In any case, both teams can attest to  massive fan bases, and  are expected to enjoy their respective supports from them. Recall that Ibadan is also a place of abode for many easterners especially Igbo traders. This could be  a morale boost to Enugu Rangers as they eye the NPFL title.

The Flying Antelopes currently charge for an eighth NPFL title and the first since 2016. Recall they got a boost on Monday after they were awarded three points and three goals as a result of Enyimba’s match abandonment on their match-day 35 derby in Enugu.

That decision pushed them up to 64 points in the table, five points above Enyimba and Remo Stars who are second and third with 59 points each.
