Crown FC on Sunday defeated First Bank of Lagos at home to garner 57 points, as Bukola Babes recorded an away victory over Prime Football Club of Oshogbo with a 2 – 1 triumph to place second with 55 points.
Crown will play its last game of the season against Delta Force in Ogwashi Uku as Bukola play host to Anambra Pillars in Ilorin.
Team Manager of Bukola Babes, Alloy Chukwuemeka, told the NPL’s official website that it is a dream come true for the young team.
“I am so happy today because we have met our expectations. At the beginning of the season, we gave ourselves a target and we have just achieved that with the    victory over Prime in Oshogbo.
“We are going to prepare very well for the Premier League because we don’t want to be counted as one of the teams just taking part in the Premier League,” Chukwuemeka said.
With JUTH of Jos already through to the Premier League, Mighty Jets, Plateau United and Babanawa will wait till the last day before they know who will join the Jos team to play in the Premier League.
