The Akure Arsenal and the Afonja Warriors will continue from where they stopped when they faced each other during the first stanza when they lock horns on Sunday

As the Nigeria Premier League resumes again on Sunday across the country after a brief break for the Federation Cup Round of 32 matches there are several mouth watering ties to look forward to.

Of the 10 fixtures, one of the most talked about would definitely be the game between Sunshine Stars of Akure and Kwara United based on so many factors.

Both clubs are currently handled by veterans of the Nigerian league - Fatai Folorunsho Amoo and Samson Unuanel, and both are also having contrasting fortunes on the log of the NPFL.

It is more than a mere league match for both sides with one seeking a way up the league ladder while the other is nursing the ambition of breaking the dichotomy of both Kano Pillars and Warri Wolves. Sunshine are 13th with 28 points after 21 games while Kwara United are third with 34 points.

When both sides clashed during the first stanza in match day 2 at the Kwara State Stadium, Ilorin, the Akure Arsenal with then coach Abimbola Samuel, had a surprise 1-1 draw but with a new coach in charge of the team now and the aspiration of Kwara United to stay top, the encounter will certainly be a different ball game.

Both have good players to count on with Sunshine blessed with the presence of returnee Izu Azuka, Moses Ocheje, Ajani Ibrahim, Abe Sunday among others while Kwara United are not also shorn of talents to call upon. Yahaya Adamu who keeps on impressing after joining during the Week 9 transfer window, Stanley Dimgba, Kabiru Sanusi, Kazeem Yekeen, Suraj Ayeleso among others are also turbo charged to go on a revenge mission on the Akure Arsenal at the Akure Township Stadium.
