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.
