The sponsors of Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) Globacom has urged the strikers of the various clubs to endeavour to increase the goal hauls this season adding it will further bring the league alive.

Glo said the Keen competition being witnessed in the Glo Premier League particularly in Week 6 is an exciting development as the tempo should be maintained, noting it is a sign that the league was experiencing steady improvement.

It says, while top teams like Pillars FC of Kano, Enyimba FC of Aba and Dolphins FC of Port Harcourt are struggling to find their rhythm, the likes of Abia Warriors, Giwa FC of Jos and Taraba FC of Jalingo have recorded away victories in the league.

According to Globacom in a press statement during the week in Lagos, “We are impressed that the excitement which heralded the new season has translated into impressive performances for some teams as they seek to upstage the traditional leaders,”

“We also believe that recent away victories recorded have given the Glo Premier League credibility and we expect that the teams that have achieved these feats will sustain the momentum, while hoping that the traditional leaders will rise up to the occasion,” the statement added.

“Indeed, the likely resurgence of the traditional teams can only engender more competition and the trend will rub off on the standard of the league.” Glo added

On the response of fans to league matches, Glo said, “The fans turnout at the stadia across the country is commendable and we task the teams to continue to give the fans enough reason to troop en masse to match venues.”
