After a 2-0 loss to Rivers United in Portharcourt on Thursday, Remo Stars make a short trip from the Treasure Base of the Nation to the Glory of all Lands to face Bayelsa United in Matchday three of the Nigeria Premier Football League.
The Sky Blue Stars will be looking to return to winning ways after the shocker they received against the Pride of Rivers with former player, Andy Okpe scoring a stunner in the final minutes of the game.
Bayelsa United on the other hand after defeating Akwa United 5-3 in the opening fixture of the 2023/24 season also faltered in their second game losing 2-0 to Doma United last weekend.
Both sides will be looking to bounce back from their defeats on Sunday with the restoration boys looking to restore trusts as they play in front of their fans.
Both have three points each as Bayelsa United have scored five goals and also conceded five goals, while Remo Stars have scored two goals and conceded three goals in two games.
This is the very first meeting between both clubs in the top division as they last met in the lower division, the Nigeria National League (NNL) with both sides picking maximum points in front of their fans.
The Sky Blue Stars were defeated 4-0 at the Yenagoa Township Stadium and the Sky Blue Stars inturn defeated them at the Akure Township Stadium after the team was banished from Gateway International Stadium, Sagamu.
The backline of Junior Nduka, Stanley Joseph and Ahmed Akinyele will be weary of Robert Mizo current highest scorer for the Restoration Boys who scored a hattrick for them against Akwa United.
The Sky Blue Stars will hope to pick their first point on the road as a boost to win the league as the Head Coach of Remo Stars, Daniel Ogunmodede postulated before the commencement of the season.
