Nasarawa United hosts FC IfeanyiUbah in a match day 13 tie of the Nigeria Professional Football League on Sunday at the 5,000 capacity Lafia Township Stadium.
With a descent history of just two years of existence, the Anambra Warriors have won two trophies in the 2016 Federation Cup and the Charity Cup.
Ghanaian Coach Yaw Preko will have his hands full as he seeks to revive the despicable away form of the FC IfeanyiUbah who are yet to register any single point on the road this season with the victory against Remo Stars at home in midweek certainly serving as morale booster ahead of this encounter.
The Solid Miners are also no pushovers as they are well acquainted with the nature of Nigerian football that have seen them playing at the top level.
They represented the nation in the CAF Champions League in 2007, finished 3rd on the league log last two seasons (2014/15) which was a password for CAF Confederation Cup last season and were moments away from repeating that feat when they got to the Federation Cup finals but lost via penalties to same FC IfeanyiUbah at the Teslim Balogun Stadium Lagos on the 6th of November 2016.
FC IfeanyiUbah are currently 13th on the log with 14 points amassed in 11 matches played while their opponents are seated on 16th position having collected 13 points in 12 matches played.
