Newcomers dominate The Predictor's XI

Six new players have made my team of the week after Match Day 14 in the Glo Premier League following eye-catching performances for their different clubs.

The six players are Kola Awe, Chuks Sampson, Jackson Daniel, Kingsley Sokari (pictured), Musa Newman and Samuel Agba.

Nembe City duo of Awe and Newman were influential at both ends of the pitch for their team against Dolphins.

Awe was massive in defence for City while Newman was industrious in attack and even capped his performance with a fine finish.

Sampson and Daniel, both of Abia Warriors, showed how important they are in their team when they clashed with Heartland in the southeast derby. Sampson came off the bench and did well defensively though conceded a spot kick while Daniel gave Heartland's midfield something to think about all day.

Sokari was pivotal in midfield for Enyimba as they drew 1-1 at El-Kanemi Warriors. The midfielder scored following his high pressing style.

Agba, on the other hand, takes the one of the two strikers' role in my 4-4-2 formation after netting a brace of goals for Kaduna United against champions, Kano Pillars in the northern derby that finished 2-2.

The Kaduna United striker showed on the day that he is a goal poacher ready to pounce on even half a chance as he scored once in each half.

Others in my team of the week for the match day under review are Abia Warriors goalkeeper, Joseph Onuoha, Pierre Coly, Christian Pyagbara, Michael Ezekiel and Kano Pillars' two-goal hero in the northern derby, Rabiu Ali.

Enyimba's Zachary Baraje is my coach of the week for setting up his team so strongly against his former team, El-Kanemi who forced them to share the points.
