WEEK 8 PREVIEW: Gombe Utd v Enyimba

Four years down the line and the Peoples Elephant knows that trips to Gombe have always ended with it returning to Aba empty-handed. Since November 20, 2005 when Enyimba lost by 0-3 to Gombe United at Abubakar Umar Memorial Stadium, the five-time champion is still seeking its first point at Gombe. Enyimba had to wait for more than 270 minutes before it could break the back line of its host Abubakar Umar Memorial Stadium. The odds are stacked against the Aba club in this game though in eight head-to-head meetings between the two sides, it has ended with 50 per cent wins for both clubs. But the Peoples Elephant stand the risk of dropping farther away from the top of the log after it was dethroned in mid-week by Warri Wolves.
Prediction: 1-0
