The Predictor - Ede gets the nod



Enyimba striker, Ifeanyi Ede, has deservedly played his way into my team of the week for Matchday 30 of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).

Interestingly it is the first time Ede is making my matchday team this season and that is due to his absence for Enyimba at some point this term owing to international outings with the Super Eagles.

But in recent matchdays, the former Enugu Rangers kept knocking on the door and finally found his way into my team after netting a brace of goals to help Enyimba to a 3-0 win over Lobi Stars on Sunday.

Ede is joined up front in my team by the impressive Akwa United forward, Mfon Udoh, who proved to be a handful for Sharks defence at the weekend.

Dolphins custodian, Austin Brown, makes a return to my team for his heroic outing at Nembe City that ensured they earned a point.

Brown gets cover from a four-man backline of Promise James, Joel Djongdang, Stanley Onuegbu and Musa Yawale.

Nasarawa United midfield duo of Ishaya Anyu and Habu Mohammed squeezed themselves into my matchday team after putting in some terrific shift against champions Kano Pillars.

Chinedu Udeagha and Rabiu Ali complete my four-man midfield while Justin Tenger edged the like of Stanley Eguma (Dolphins) and Zachary Baraje (El-Kanemi Warriors) to win my coach of the week for the immediate past matchday.

The Predictor's XI - Matchday 30

Austin Brown (Dolphins) - Promise James (Kano Pillars), Joel Djongdang (El-Kanemi Warriors), Stanley Onuegbu (El-Kanemi Warriors), Musa Yawale (El-Kanemi Warriors) - Ishaya Anyu (Nasarawa United), Habu Mohammed (Nasarawa United), Chinedu Udeagha (Enugu Rangers), Rabiu Ali (Kano Pillars) - Ifeanyi Ede (Enyimba), Mfon Udoh (Akwa United)

Coach: Justin Tenger (Akwa United)
