In readiness for a topflight resumption, the Uchendu Warriors and the Pride of Rivers have agreed to slug it out in two-legged friendly

Abia Warriors face Rivers United in an all Nigeria Professional Football League double-header test-match in the build-up to the top-flight resumption on Wednesday.

Before now, they had met twice this season, with the Uchendu Warriors defeating Stanley Eguma's men 2-1 in Umuahia before gaining a 0-0 draw in Port Harcourt before the World Cup break.

Both sides will first meet at the Umuahia Township Stadium on Thursday, July 12 and the return leg holds two days later at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium, Port Harcourt, according to Abia Warriors.

Eight-placed Abia Warriors will travel to Akure to face relegation-troubled Sunshine Stars at the Akure Sports Complex next Wednesday.

On their own part, the ninth-placed Pride of Rivers will be off duty as their foes Enyimba face Ivory Coast’s Williamsville in their CAF Confederation Cup campaign on the same day.
