No more continental engagement as Rivers United will today take on Wikki Tourist in one of their reschedule NPFL fixtures, reports Nigeriasoccernet.com.
Currently 2nd on group B log with 3 outstanding games, Rivers United have a better chance of progressing to the super six but first have to overcome Wikki Tourist who is battling for survival in the group.
The game will be played 4pm this Thursday at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium Bauchi.
Wikki Tourist recently had their three points and three goals deducted by the Interim Management Committee of the Nigeria Premier Football League for assault on Match Officials by the fans in fixture against Bayelsa United restored by the Nigeria Football Federation Appeals Committee.
The Bauchi club stopped their run of three consecutive league defeats with the comprehensive 4-0 home win against Abia Warriors last time out, but that result only extended their win run to four games this season and only 15 points from their 16 matches this season which puts them 9th on the 10 teams group B log, today's game is a must win for them to boost their survival hopes.
Head To Head
Thursday's game will be the 22nd competitive meeting between the two sides, with Wikki Tourist currently leading the way on 9 wins compared to Rivers United's 7.
5 meetings between both sides have ended in a draw.
