Bukola Babes top Team of the Week

Newcomers, Bukola Babes got three mentions in the Team of the Week for Matchday 32 announced by the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) on Tuesday.

The recognition comes on the back of the Babes 3-0 win over Kwara United last Saturday in Ilorin in a derby game.

Caretaker coach, Sulaiman Kabir Dogo leads two of his outfield players, Promise James and Otu-Bassey Effiom, into the team that adopts a 4-3-3 formation.

Dogo is picked as coach of the week for guiding his side to back-to-back wins - his first - since he took charge of Bukola Babes.

The Babes had secured a 2-1 win over Kaduna United in Week 31.

James gets a place at right-back due to his all-round display against Kwara United while Effiom makes the cut for tormenting the opposition's backline and getting one of the goals.

Heartland and Warri Wolves, however, provided two players each for this week's team.

Azubuike Egwuekwe and Michael Okoyoh made the cut from Wolves while Bartholomew Ibenegbu and Chibuzor Ozurumba are picked from Heartland.

Enugu Rangers shot-stopper, Ebele Obi, makes the team for the first time alongside Papa Idris of Kaduna United, Moses Bunde of Lobi Stars and Moshood Kasali of Juth.

Jude Aneke of Kaduna United, who is joint top scorer in the league this season with 13 goals so far complete the team.
