Remo Stars Football Club (RSFC) will endeavour to record a back-to-back win for the first time in the second round of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) when they travel to the Dan Anyian Stadium in Owerri, Imo State.
The matchday 22 between both sides was earlier scheduled to take place on Sunday 10th of April 2022 but moved forward to Tuesday 12th of April 2022.
Gbenga Ogunbote’s men triumphed over MFM FC last weekend at the Remo Stars Stadium in Ikenne-Remo, while the Ikon Allah Boys suffered a 2-0 loss to Nasarawa United.
The Sky Blue Stars are currently fourth on the table, eleven points behind leaders Rivers United, while the Naze Millionaires occupies the first from behind.
Heartland FC and Remo Stars FC will be meeting for the second time in the NPFL after the previous meeting saw the Sky Blue Stars defeat the Naze Millionares at the Remo Stars Stadium in Ikenne-Remo, Ogun State.
Early goals from Andy Okpe and a sublime finish from Samuel Anakwe ensured the Sky Blue Stars got maximum points against Heartland FC.
The host will try to return to winning ways after they have lost three and drawn one in their last four games while the Sky Blue Stars will hope to pick at least a point in Owerri when they face off on Tuesday.
The last time Heartland FC won at home was on the 5th of March when they defeated Niger Tornadoes 1-0 in Owerri.
The Sky Blue Stars should be battle-ready to face the likes of Okoro Ebuka, Ogbonna Onuoha, Okorie Arinze, Lordson Ichull and goalkeeper, Femi Thomas amongst host of others.
Remo Stars have a handful of players to pick from as all players aside from Samuel Anakwe who currently is suffering from a groin injury.
A win for Remo Stars will further boost the confidence of players keeping tabs on Rivers United, Plateau United and Enugu Rangers who are currently on top of the league table, a draw will be a fair result while a win for Heartland will be their best result in the last four games played.
