After a resounding 2-1 victory over Police FC to lift the State of Osun AITEO/F.A Cup, Osun United are battle ready to slug it out against Abia Comets Football Club on Wednesday in the matchday two of the ongoing Nigeria National League (NNL).

The Omoluabi Giants were buoyed by the return of some key players of the team, who missed the first game of the season and the F.A Cup final.

Apart from Adio Yusuf who is recuperating from a thigh injury, other players are as fit as fiddle which will provide ample opportunity for the veteran Coach Samson Unuanel to field a strong squad against the visiting Abia Comets, that forced 3SC to a draw.

The Bethel Orji boys had forced Oluyole Warriors to a one all draw in their MatchDay one encounter which held at the Lekan Salami Stadium, Ibadan.

The team also won their second game played in Umuahia, defeating Bayelsa United by two unreplied goals to stay top of NNL Group B1.

The Omoluabi Giants however lost their first league game against Bayelsa United, who struggled to score two late goals in a bumper to bumper clash in Yenogoa.

Speaking after the training, Coach Unuanel assured the good people of Osun of maximum three points in the first home game with a call on fans “to remain loyal and supportive”.

Today’s game will hold at the Oshogbo Township Stadium, Oshogbo beginning from 4pm.
