Giwa FC dominate The Predictor's XI

Glo Premier League newcomers, Giwa FC, are my toast of Match Day 19 as four of their players made my team of the week.
The quartet of Alex Akinyemi,  Ibrahim Akide, Chris Madaki and Charles Henlong were brilliant in Giwa FC's 0-0 draw at Enyimba on Sunday.

Akinyemi, Akide and Madaki produced some classy defending for the Elephant at the Enyimba Stadium while Henlong sat in front of the back four so well and cut off most of the aerial attempts of the People's Elephant late in the match.

Giwa FC would have claimed a fifth spot in my team but Olorunleke Ojo was edged out by Benin Republic international, Emmanuel Fabiyi, who kept goal for Abia Warriors at Nasarawa United and conceded once.

Fabiyi put in a massive shift for Abia Warriors in the game but could only finish the first 45 minutes following an injury. Warriors went on to lose 1-3 after Joseph Onuoha replaced him in the second half.

Bayelsa United striker, Peter Ebimobowei, made my team on the back of his predatory instinct in front of goal. He netted twice in his team's 2-2 draw at Crown FC.

I have also picked Jude Ebitogwa, Godspower Aniefiok, Muyiwa Lawal, Esosa Igbinoba and Ezekiel Bassey to complete my team of the week for the Nigerian top flight following their eye-catching performances at the weekend.
