The home ward band of the 2015 Nigerian Glo Premier League holds lots of water depending on the side of the divide you and your team are. To those that have teams amongst the top four front runners, the league is getting thicker and keener, while people that have teams on the relegation zone, the end seems end. The truth is that the fight, struggle and what have you are so farce that none of the teams would let go until the curtain is finally drawn.

The interesting aspect of it is that even the book makers are at the edge of not being caught in the web as the league has set itself into an unpredictable timeline. It is on that note that pundit have pointed to the direction of a photo finish affair ending of this year’s championship.

The results of the week 33 in some centres did not help matters either. For instance, at Enugu where Rangers took on one of the aspirants to this year’s league, Warri Wolves the homers struggled to hold their visitors to 1-1 draw. While FC Taraba defeated Heartland FC 1-0 to continue their fight for survival from relegation. That is the face of the league and it is one of the attributes that make it worth watching and discussing.

As the fight is keen on the top, so also it is at the bottom of the table. All the team are not relenting on their oars to hold firm grip to the direction that will enhance their stay or otherwise.

The top four in the 20 team league log are as follows; Enyimba International has 61 points from 33 games, Warri Wolves with 55 with the same number of matches, while Wikki Tourists and Giwa FC are third and fourth with 54 points respectively on the same number of games.

The picture will be clearer after week 34 game where Enyimba will be away to Nasarawa United, Wolves will play home. Even Sunshine of Akure that once lay claim to the title now on the fifth position with 53 points will be home and will work hard to see if they can turn their opponents back.

Fact is that Wolves since their transformation from NPA to their current status has not won any title of any kind despite the huge investment Delta State government has pumped into it, being second on the table will no doubt place them on intense pressure to see if they can change the cause of history. Their result over these odd years has been nearly. Therefore they put every foot on ground to get it right this time around.

It obvious that in football nothing is impossible, they have a formidable opponent to tackle in Enyimba, a team with great pedigree. The Aba Elephants are known for their never say die attitude and will no doubt fight to finish. The former two-time African League Club champions has a balance side that never let go on crunchy time like this. However, except if any unpredictable happen at the line, the squad is bent on ensure that it will reclaim the league diadem that was sometime like their birth right.

Giwa FC and Wikki, football though not mathematics their chances to continue to soak away the heat may be limited. The only spirit that fights and makes teams to be where they want, is the depth of the bench and they seemed to lack it.
