Defending champions, Kano Pillars will have to face former African champions, Enyimba without captain Rabiu Ali and Moses Ekpai in Wednesday’s Nigeria Professional Football League Week 24 clash.
Both players have been suspended due to receiving their second bookings in the 4-1 win over Shooting Stars on Sunday.
“Both Rabiu and Ekpai are not available for the match as they each got their second bookings in our last game against Shooting Stars. They are suspended for a match each,” Kano Pillars media officer, Idris Malikawa revealed.
It is going to be a tough task for Pillars to garner points in Aba without two of their best players this season thus far.
The People’s Elephants welcome Kano Pillars at the Enyimba International stadium in a match that has been tagged a league decider for the Aba boys who are placed 2nd on the log, one point adrift table toppers, Sunshine Stars.
The reverse fixture ended in a 1-0 win for Masu Gida and suspended Moses Ekpai got the lone goal that gifted Pillars the victory.
