WIKKI Tourists consolidated their leadership of the Nigeria league after they beat El Kanemi Warriors in a north eastern derby on Wednesday. The Bauchi club now have 37 points from 20 matches.
Their match winner was former Flying Eagles striker Abubakar Lawal, who fired home in the 57th minute off a curling cross.
The Bauchi – based outfit will today attempt to consolidate on their good runs so far as they confront hard fighting Heartland.
Heartland played a 2-2 draw with Warri Wolves on Wednesday and would definitely want to halt Wikki’s fine run.
The Nazi Millionaires are no doubt condemned to win today’s encounter as a ship will see them in the relegation zone.
However, Enugu Rangers are within striking distance of the table toppers after they pipped Kano Pillars 1-0 in Enugu, also on Wednesday.
After a scoreless first half, defender Adamu Murtala sliced the ball into his own net in the 56th minute following pressure from Rangers striker Bobby Clement.
