Rangers, Plateau dominate NPL team

Enugu Rangers and Plateau United were the dominant sides in the Team of the Week for Matchday 33 announced by the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) on Wednesday.

NPL named three personnel apiece from both clubs for this week's team.

3SC are the other Premier League side with more than one mention in the team.

Rangers provided three players - James Okwuosah in defence, John Nnam in midfield and Brendan Ogbu in attack.

Plateau United head coach, Bitrus Bewarang, who also doubles as general manager of the club, is picked as coach of the week.

Centre-back Obinna Nwokolo and top scorer of the league, George Akpabio, complete the three personnel in the team from Plateau United.

The 3SC duo of Chima Akas and Kabiru Alausa are selected in the team by the Premier League.

However, former Gabros FC keeper, Chike Michael, now attached with Zamfara United, is the surprise inclusion in the team.

Michael, who joined Zamfara United two seasons ago, put up a decent performance against Heartland at the weekend to help his side to a one-nil win. He makes the team for the first time.

Uche Oguchi (Dolphins), Kola Anubi (Sharks) and Rabiu Ali (Kano Pillars) complete this week's team.
