Zakary Baraje favoured to take over at Kano Pillars

Veteran league coach, Zakary Baraje, has sensationally been linked once again with the now-vacant Kano Pillars managerial position, following the resignation of Kadiri Ikhana over the weekend.

The experienced manager, who has handled most of the top league teams in the country, was linked with the Kano Pillars position before the start of the season before Ikhana eventually secured the top job.

Rangers bounce back against Kano Pillars in style

Rangers earned a first win in six games after beating a lacklustre Kano Pillars 3-1 in Enugu.

The result did little in improving the league standing of the champions, as they remain five points adrift of safety.

Three first-half goals from Chibuzor Madu, Chiamaka Madu and Ifeanyi George were enough to render Adamu Mohammed's first-half stoppage time goal for Kano Pillars a mere consolation, as the 'Cathedral' finally came alive this season with some eye catching football from the home team.

Enugu Rangers relegation would be a nightmare story for Nigerian football

If Rangers go down, this could be the start of a descent into oblivion. And the club will not be the only losers.

Gradually, but with a sense of near inevitability, Enugu Rangers are inexorably drawing closer and closer to the once unthinkable: relegation.

Led by the likes of Christian Chukwu and Emmanuel Okala, the Flying Antelopes, carrying the hopes of the people of southeast Nigeria fresh off the civil war, pulverised almost anything in their path from the 1970s to '80s (okay, all but Shooting Stars, who ran them all the way) as they cantered to six league titles.

The last of those championships was won...

Tony Okpotu hat-trick hero, Godwin Obaje brace wins it for FCIU

Tony Okpotu was the star on match day 19, as the talented Lobi Stars forward netted a hat-trick to become only the fourth player to achieve the feat this season.

Godwin Obaje completed a comeback win for FC Ifeanyi Ubah against Shooting Stars, netting a second-half brace from the spot. Plateau United are the mid-season champions while Remo Stars despite their best efforts succumbed to defeat against Enyimba to remain in 19th place.


Enyimba defeated Remo Stars by a lone...
