MATCH PREVIEW - VFS vs STORES

All eyes will be firmly fixed on the Soccer Temple as Vandrezzer FC host Stationary Stores in the Lagos Derby on Saturday. 


The Lions of Naija can strengthen their grip in the top three with a fourth straight home win, having beaten Nilayo FC (1-0), Ekiti United (1-0), and Giant Builders (3-2) in their opening three home games. 


This would also be an opportunity for VFC's fans to watch the team via the VFC mobile app after the Matchday 8 clash against GO-Round FC was abandoned in midweek.


Form and Player to Watch


The last time VFC were in action, they picked the maximum points thanks to a late penalty by Brazilian attacker Ivo Junior.


It was Ivo's first goal of the campaign and the tricky attacker would be hoping to build on that.


For Stores, they are currently on a giveaway form as they are winless in seven games and bottom of the Southern Conference B1. 


Yusuf Adesina's men have lost all of their away games so far and have conceded 11 goals in seven games.


Stores lost 3-0 at home to 3SC early this month and this game might be coming at the wrong time for them as VFC attackers Daniel Kolawole, Golden Udo-Inyang and Ivo are beginning to rediscover their form.


Head to Head


It is the first time VFC and Stores will be trading tackles in a competitive game. It's their first Lagos Derby against each other. 


Line Up

VFC XI - Nwakamma, Ekpo, Udom, Edoho, Oloye, Mark, Lolo, Okoro, Uko, Golden, Kolawole


Subs: Daniel, Akpan, Ajong, Ivo, Rasaq, Ipaaye, Akra.

 

Broadcast


Fans won't be allowed into the stadium for the game but can follow the broadcast on VFCTV via the VFC mobile app which is available on Play Store and iOS.
