Lobi Stars are still on the road for the second game for their double away fixture in an NPFL 2021/2022 Matchday 7 fixture against Katsina United at Mohammadu Dikko Stadium, Kastina on Wednesday, January 19, 2022.
Despite the 2-1 lose in Lafia last weekend, Lobi Stars are not deterred, rather they look spurred and determined not to return to Makurdi without something in the kitty, and the only chance left on the road trip is against struggling Katsina United.
Currently placed 10 on the NPFL Log, as a result of the lose against Nasarawa United, dropping 4 place downwards, Lobi Stars will be all out to regain their lost place as well as 18th placed Katsina United who obviously will not spare anything to resist losing at home to enhance their position out of the red line.
The all-time head to head gives The glory to glory boys superiority over the homers. With 6 direct matches, Lobi Stars had 3 wins, and 1 draw with Katsina United’s 2 wins. Somehow Katsina United have not had any win over Lobi Stars in their last 3 meets.
With the stakes high for both clubs, nothing less than a spectacular game should be expected in the all-important midweek encounter.
Coach Eddy Lord Dombraye in his usual spirit of optimism assured Lobi Stars fans of a better result in Katsina. In his words; we can not afford to drop two games at a stretch on the road.
