In the world of sports , the Nigerian Professional Football League will witness some rescheduled matches today.

The Defending champions, Lobi Stars have found themselves only a step from the bottom of the Group A table.

As a result of their CAF Champions League engagement, which is now in the group stage, the Pride of Benue have played four times in the 10-week season and acquired just seven points, same with Niger Tornadoes, who however have inferior goal difference to be confined to the rear.

Lobi look good to beat visiting Katsina United, which may lift them to No 5, if results in other centres go in their favour.

The home team have won their two matches at the Aper Aku Stadium in Makurdi this season (3-0 versus Kwara United and 2-1 against Rangers), while Katsina United are poor travellers having lost all away fixtures by the same 0-2 scoreline to Remo Stars, Sunshine Stars and Enyimba.

Enyimba are away to Bendel Insurance, who have been at the receiving end of unfair officiating, which provoked Edo State Deputy Governor Philip Shaibu to threaten pulling out of the league.
