3SC two-goal hero in The Predictor's XI

3SC centre-back, Francis Edem, is my man of Match Day 33 in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) and deservedly made my team of the week.

Edem, who joined 3SC from First Bank FC, scored twice to help his club win 2-1 over Enugu Rangers.

The centre-back kept his composure to score his first goal from the spot and then headed in the winner to give 3SC a fighting chance of survival from the drop this season.

The 3SC defender had previously made my team of the week thrice on match days 11, 21 and 24.

Edem is joined in defence by the trio of Olayinka Onaolapo, Festus Umanah and Festus Austine.

El-Kanemi Warriors custodian, David Obiazor, is my number one for this match day.

Dare Ojo, Shehu Abdullahi and the impressive Kano Pillars playmaker, Rabiu Ali, are my three midfielders while Tayo Fabiyi, Mfon Udoh and Haruna Babalo form a three-man strike force up front.

Veteran coach, Kadiri Ikhana, who has once more hinted that he will quit coaching once he guides Nasarawa United to safety, is my coach of the week.

Ikhana against all odds guided Nasarawa United to earn a point at Akwa United.
