Stephen Eze will be available for FC IfeanyiUbah's crucial Federation Cup semi-final second leg encounter against Niger Tornadoes on Thursday.

Asides Eze, the Anambra Warriors' duo of Ikechukwu Ezenwa and Adeleye Olamilekan, who were also part of the Super Eagles B's Wafu Cup campaign will be absent for the crucial clash.

Ezenwa is gearing up for the national side's Russia 2018 World Cup qualifier against Zambia on Saturday, while Adeleye is yet to recover from injury suffered at the tourney.

Yaw Preko's men will be hoping to overturn the 4-2 defeat in the first leg of the encounter to stand a chance to defend the title they won last year in this year's final on October 15.
