NFF's Appeals Committee orders Kano Pillars/ Enyimba replay

Sai Masu and the Aba Millionaires will continue their race for the league title when they were ordered to replay the tie in Lokoja

Title rivals Kano Pillars and Enyimba have been ordered to re-play their Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Match day 31 tie which was not concluded when it was played at the Sani Abacha Stadium, Kano.

The replay, which will be the full 90 minutes, will be held at the Confluence Stadium, Lokoja next Wednesday.

The Appeals Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) made the ruling on Thursday after it heard the plea of Kano Pillars.

The NFF's Organising and Disciplinary Committee had earlier ruled that the Peoples Elephant be awarded the match.

As a result of this decision, Enyimba have dropped to third place on the table with 56 points, meaning that Bayelsa United are on top of the standings with 58 points from 35 matches while Pillars are second with 57 points from 34 games.
