Juth, Sunshine Stars game hold on Friday

The Week 13 game of the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) between Jos University Teaching Hospital (Juth) Football Club and Sunshine Stars will now be played on Friday.
The game was originally scheduled to hold on Sunday in the Premier League calendar for this season.
But the shift in date is due to the fact that Juth now shares same ground - the Kaduna Township Stadium - with Kaduna United and Niger Tornadoes.
Kaduna United are the original owners of the ground and would play Enyimba on Sunday while Tornadoes play host to Enugu Rangers on same ground on Saturday.
Head coach of Juth, Tunde Rahman, is unfazed by the fact that his side will play on Friday, as he is concerned with getting all points from Sunshine Stars' visit.
"The day we play really doesn't matter, it is the points that count for us in this game," the Juth manager said.
Juth are 19th on the Premier League log while their opponents, Sunshine Stars, are second.
