Todayâ€™s midweek match between Nath Boys and Lagos Island East in the Lagos Junior League, LJL ,is a clash which can adequately be termed a winner takes all affair.
The Nath Boys and Lagos Island East are both tied on 21 points and sit 3rd and 4th respectively on Group B table and they go full blast in the tie slated for the Legacy pitch, National Stadium in Surulere, Lagos, Nigeria by 4p.m this afternoon.
However, to add more petrol to the already raging fire in the LJL, all the top four teams in Group B have 21 points and are separated by their goal diferrences.
For the Nath Boys, they will be looking to improve on their scintillating form after thrashing Iru Victoria 8-0 last weekend. Their opponents from Lagos Island East will be struggling to put a very disheartening loss to Lagos Mainland in their week 16 encounter behind them as they face todayâ€™s task.
Interestingly, their major rivals, Apapa and Surulere will be praying for a loss for either of the teams as this will limit the title challenge by Nath Boys and Lagos Island East.
This match is a must win for the Islanders because their last fixture for the season will be against rivals Apapa in a fortnight.
