Remo Stars
Remo Stars Football Club (RSFC) head into another Southwest Derby Showdown with Ikorodu United FC by 4pm in Lagos on Thursday, 31st of May, 2018 at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere.
The Sky Blue Stars make a short trip to Lagos having defeated two Southwestern teams (Osun United and Stationery Stores) away from home in the first two (2) games of the ongoing Nigeria National League (NNL) and are ready to make it three (3) in three (3) when they take on the Oga Boys in Lagos.
Ogwuche Mathias scored from the spot to give the Sky Blue Stars their deserved win against Delta Stars Football Club in Match Day 5 to remain on top of Group B2 in the most important league in Nigeria.
James Faith kept another clean sheet in his last match following a long distance free kick that saw Remo Stars FC bow narrowly to Dynamite Force FC in Auchi.
Meanwhile, the Oga Boys weren’t in action in Match Day 5 fixture against Osun State United but want to continue on their fine form that saw them conquer Unicem Rovers 3-1 in Lagos after they previously played a 0-0 draw with Crown FC of Ogbomosho.
Both sides last met in the Nigeria National League in the year 2015, the Sky Blue Stars defeated Ikorodu United FC 2-0 at the Otunba Dipo Dina Stadium in Ijebu Ode and in turn saw out Remo Stars 1-0 in Lagos.

A win for Remo Stars will make them keep their momentum on the top of Group B2 table and host, Ikorodu United will try their best possible to contain the Sky Blue Stars who are ready to pick another maximum points on the road.
Speaking with RSFC Media, Edozie Ewelike feels it is going to be a difficult game but he is very optimistic that he and his teammates will excel against the Oga Boys.
“It is going to be a very serious and difficult game because they know the quality of players Remo Stars have always produced going into any competition and they will have prepared extremely well to defeat us on Thursday.”
“They (Ikorodu United) also have a strong side, I am part of the team that played them in 2015. We defeated them 2-1 on aggregate but we want to defeat them in front of their fans this time around.”
“Like I said earlier, it’s not going to be an easy game but I am very sure and optimistic that we will get something in the game and we will push very hard to get the maximum points in Lagos.” Edozie concluded.
