Andy Okpe scored a brace in the opening five minutes of the game before Samuel Anakwe put the icing on the cake for the Sky Blue Stars to give them a deserved victory.

The Solid Miners will hope to get a positive result against the Sky Blue Stars in Ikenne-Remo and they will be looking at Abubakar Abdullahi and Ajibola Otegbeye who have gotten four goals for them this season to come to the party.
The Sky Blue Stars on the other hand will continue to have faith in Andy Okpe who already scored three goals to his name alongside Akanni Qudus, Samuel Anakwe and Abdullahi Oyedele upfront to get the job done for the host.
This encounter will be their third in the NPFL after they previously met twice in 2017 when Eric Dufegha helped the Sky Blue Stars defeat them 1-0 at the Gateway International Stadium, Sagamu and the reverse fixture saw the Solid Miners beat the Remo Stars 3-1 at the Lafia Township Stadium with Awoyemi Abdulrasheed getting the only goal for Remo Stars.
The Coach Gbenga Ogunbote led side will also push to maintain their clean sheet in the ongoing NPFL, the only club to still have that record this season.
A win for Remo Stars FC will see them maintain the top position on the NPFL table while a win for the visitors will see them climb up the ladder.
