NPFL Preview: Rivers United, FCIU set for crunch clash - FCNaija

Rivers United and Heartland FC will re-enact their rivalry in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) on Wednesday, April 4 at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium, Port Harcourt.

The two sides go into Wednesday’s game on the back of contrasting results from matchday 13.

United lost by the odd goal in five to Lobi Stars while Heartland beat Nasarawa United 2-1 at the Dan Anyiam Stadium, Owerri on the same day.

Heartland currently occupies the fourth and final relegation spot in the NPFL and will be in desperate need of the points on Wednesday.

United on the other hand, have amassed just one more point than Heartland and know that anything other than an outright victory against Heartland will see them get involved in the relegation Dog fight.

Heartland’s head coach, Ezekiel Onyegbulem also spoke to our media channel about Wednesday’s match which kicks off at 4pm.
