Can Zamfara stop Heartland’s three point chase?

High flying Heartland FC of Owerri will be guest of Zamfara United FC  tomorrow. The Owerri-based side which represented Nigeria in the CAF Champions League where they made it to the final, will attempt to inflict a home defeat on Zamfara, which has found the Premier League too tough to crack.

Zamfara are presently 19th on the league table and needs a win badly to brighten its chance for an escape. With 14 games, Zamfara has managed to chulk up16 points.  But that chance looks very dim as they host Heartland, a team very eager to lift the Premier league title.

Heartland’s coach Ben Iroha and his wards will file out tomorrow in frantic search for the maximum points.  Though, Zamfara are poorly placed in the league, they seem to have a strong support base at home and they will be banking on this support to spring a surprise against Heartland.
