Oriental derby kick starts Nigerian League

The Nigeria Premier League opens on March 9 with an encounter between Rangers and Enyimba in what is known as the Oriental derby in Nigeria.

Finally, after five postponements, the League may eventually start in three weeks after draws were conducted on Friday in Abuja.

In the League last season, Rangers beat Enyimba 1-0 in Enugu and then lost 20 in Aba.

The encounter this time may be different as fans may want to see the likes of Chigozie Agbim and Sunday Mba (if Rangers and Warri Wolves sort out contractual disputes on time) as well as Ejike Uzoenyi who were all at the Africa Cup of Nations with Nigeria recently.

Another testy tie will be in Port Harcourt as Sharks host Warri Wolves.
