In this report, We’ll be looking at the last standings of teams across the 4 conferences of the Nigeria National League as they go for Yuletide break.
The chances of some of them maintain their impressive form when they come back, and the possibility of a concerted challenge on thier dominance will also be forming one of the major theme of the piece.
3SC of Ibadan stands tall and comfortable on the log of Group B1 of the Southern Conference of NNL.
Missing with a whisker the promotion to NPFL last season in the play off remains a consequential wound the Oluyole warriors continues to nurse to healings.
Relatively enjoying the cash backing from the State Governor, Governor Seyi Makinde who was in the Adamasingba Stadium to watch the cracker between 3SC and Ekiti United, Shooting Stars have shown huge enthusiasm and readiness to fulfill the yearnings of thier teeming fans.
Garnering 13 points from thier 5 games played so far, it would be amazing to see probably another team debasing the Ibadan based side at the long run of the league, while it may look so conclusive to tip them for NPFL next season, the present atmosphere of the campaign no doubt has 3SC as the talking point.
And of course wrapping up the year with that 1 nil victory over Ekiti United is much more than a boost for the team as they continue to create a mild wild impression in the mind of Oluyole fans.
Gateway United, Dynamite FC and Osun United all currently hold 9 points on the log, it will however require a great effort from any of this team adjusting to the rythm and Standard the Shooting Stars have set. It would be damning and darey show seeing any of them challenging the table topper when they resume from the yuletide break.
While Ibom Youth FC, Go Round also have 6 points in their coffer, Nilayo FC have earned 5 points so far from all the season fixtures.
Giant Brillars, Apex Crane and Abia Comets all have been able to rocked 4 points each while Ekiti United is still showing their usual less aggressive approach to the league with just 3 points from all thier matches, a clear limit of a club that probably lacks the requisite to be in the scheme of league.
