Federation Cup: Enyimba FC, Rivers United, Wikki Tourist Target Semi Final Berth


/ by Augustine Akhilomen
Reigning Premier League champions, Enyimba will look to overcome a rejuvenated RiversUnited side in the quarter final of the Federation Cup at the Lekan Salami Stadium, Ibadan, on Wednesday.

Having won the FA Cup four times, the Peoples' Elephant who have been experiencing a contrasting form recently must avoid conceding early against a Rivers United team that have been defensively solid at the back.

The Aba Warriors edged out Julius Atete 1-0 thanks to Ezekiel Bassey's late goal in the previous round while Rivers United defeated Shooting Stars 3-1 via penalty shootouts.

Meanwhile, NPFL leaders, Wikki Tourist face a stiff challenge against 'giant killer'Crown FC at the Confluence Stadium in Lokoja on Wednesday.

The Ogbomosho outfit stunned top-flight side, Enugu Rangers 2-1 in Cup round of 16 tie in Kaduna while the Bauchi outfit benched top-flight newcomers, Plateau United 1-0 in Akure to set the tone for the battle for a semifinals ticket.

A win for the 2012 quarterfinalists against Wikki Tourists will see the side inch further to the semis to realising their lofty dream for a shot at the continent through the Cup platform.
