Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL matchday 14 fixture involving Warri Wolves and Akwa United FC has been rescheduled by the league organisers, League Management Company LMC.
The match which was originally fixed for Sunday, March 7 has been rescheduled to take place on Monday, March 8, 2021 and will kick-off at 4pm at the Delta State Polytechnic Stadium in Ozoro.
The shift in date may not be unconnected with the Local government elections slated for Delta state this weekend.
In a letter dated Thursday 4 March 2021 and signed by the LMC Chief Operating Officer Salihu Abubakar, the league organisers regret any inconveniences the change in date may have caused both teams and directed all stakeholders to ensure that all logistics are put in place ahead of the game.
Akwa United, 5th on the NPFL log, have picked five points from their previous six away games while 19th placed Warri Wolves have dropped the same number of points in six home matches thus far.
Warri Wolves and Akwa United played out a 1-1 draw in both home and away games last season before the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic which truncated the league.
