Draw at half-time

These teams have shown some similarities in how they have scored and conceded goals, stats that should play significance in this fixture. Kano Pillars have scored 31 goals and conceded 24 in 30 fixtures while Lobby Stars have scored 34 and conceded 28 in the same number of games. The visitors have won three and lost twice in the last five while Kano Pillars have 1W, 1D and 3L in the last five. While the hosts sit 3rd in the NPL table and have the home advantage in this fixture, they should struggle for points against Lobi Stars which have a better record in the last five games.

Draw at full-time

We think this game will end with both sides sharing the spoils. Kano Pillars may have the home advantage but the H2H record shows that a fixture against Lobi Stars has always been a tight one. There have been 12 meetings between these teams and four ended in a draw. Kano Pillars have 4W while Lobi Stars have 5W in those meetings.

Lobi Stars will score first

We are backing the away team to score first in this fixture. Lobi Stars have a better record in the last five matches compared to Kano Pillars. The visitors come into this fixture with two clean-sheet victories and a 1-0 loss. The hosts have only one clean sheet victory and two losses in the last three games. Our pick is based on the fact that Lobi Stars has a better scoring record and should find the net first in this match.

Match Preview:  Kano Pillars Hope for Resurgence for Top Three Quest

A few slips in recent fixtures have threatened Kano Pillars' quest for a top-three finish this season. But can they regain their form with seven matches to go?

Kano Pillars

Third-placed Kano Pillars have struggled with inconsistencies in the last five games, winning only once within that duration. A 2-1 loss to eleventh-placed MFM FC a few days ago epitomized their biggest worry going forward. A shaky backline and a lack of firepower in the last five matches have seen them score only two goals in the last five matches. In this fixture, the top three is at stake but home advantage should inspire Kano Pillars to do better. The hosts haven't lost at home this season.

Lobi Stars

Lobi Stars have netted six times in the last five games. They have conceded three goals within that duration. With more wins (5) than Kano Pillars (4) in previous meetings, Lobi Stars should fight to keep that record on Sunday. However, the visitors have been awful away from home having lost 12 matches, won only one and drawn twice in 15 away fixtures so far.
