..clash of two oldest team in Nigeria Shifts to Wednesday
The Week 17 game of the Bet9ja Nigeria National League (NNL), between Bendel Insurance Football Club of Benin and Shooting Stars Sports Club of Ibadan (3SC) earlier scheduled for Saturday has been moved to Wednesday October 31 by the management of the Nigeria National League.
The epic clash between Insurance and the Oluyole Warriors will be played at the University of Benin Sports Complex, Ugbowo, Benin City beginning from 4:00pm.
It would be recalled that the Benin Arsenal on Thursday last week at Warri Township Stadium recorded their first away victory following their lone goal victory over J. Atete Football Club of Otujeremi, Ughelli, Delta State.
The victory against the Delta side has placed the Goodwill Obaseki Boys in good stead with 26 points from 16 games ahead of 3SC who top the Group B1 Table with 28 points from 17 games for promotion to the Nigeria elite division.
A win for Insurers against the Edith Agoye tutored Ibadan side will guarantee them automatic qualification to the playoff which will qualify them for the Nigeria Professional Football League next season, while a draw ensures 3sc topping the table.
