Former champions Enyimba and Akwa United will light up Aba when they clash in a Nigeria Premier Football League matchday two encounter on Wednesday (today).



Both teams enjoyed contrasting fortunes on matchday one and will be desperate to lay down a marker ahead of a tough and rigorous campaign.

Enyimba started the campaign on a resounding note, edging out Nasarawa United 2-1 away on Sunday.

Akwa United, on the other hand, were stunned 2-0 at home by NPFL newcomers Bendel Insurance in their opening fixture.

Defeat in this game will no doubt put pressure on their rookie head coach, Deji Ayeni.

For eight-time champions Enyimba, consolidating the win against Nasarawa United will be their target in this tie.

In another Group A contest, the El-Kanemi Warriors will entertain Nasarawa United.

Both teams lost on matchday one and will be looking for their first win of the season.
