Baba Ganaru and his boys know that of they want to have any chance of making it to CAF competitions or even win the league, they cannot afford to drop further points.

But standing in their way is the defending champions, Rivers United.

The Pride of Rivers have won one and drawn the other of two matches so far. The last game was a big test for Stanley Eguma and his boys which they barely passed in dramatic style.
