Heartland and Kano Pillars face off in a Match Day 37 fixture of the Nigeria Professional Football (NPFL) at the Dan Anyiam Stadium in a clash of two sides in need of points for contrasting reasons.
The Naze Millionaires have been disappointing this season, as they are mired in a relegation dogfight with only two games to go; Ramson Madu’s side sit in 18th place on 40 points, two points from safety.
Heartland boast of two wins, a draw from their last five games and should they get relegated, it would be their first in history.
On the other hand, Kano Pillars still nurse the ambition of continental football and they sit in eight on 51 points.
Sai Masu Gida are in slightly better form having won three and lost two of their last five matches.
Pillars coach Mohammed Babaganaru is targeting a win to keep their hopes of playing on the continent alive, and will hope they perform much better than the goalless draw of the first leg in May in Kano.
