The League Management Company (LMC) has postponed the match-day 29 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) game between Rivers United and Ikorodu United in Port Harcourt.

The postponement was at the behest of Rivers United following an auto crash involving the club’s official vehicle on Thursday in Ndele, Rivers State, which left several players and official injured.

In a release signed by the Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the LMC, Salihu Abubakar on Friday, the request of Rivers United FC to postpone the game, which was based on medical advice, was granted.

A new date for the fixture is yet to be announced.

Rivers United are currently in third place of the NPFL standings with 44 points from 26 matches while Ikorodu United are in 19th place with 16 points from 25 matches.
