Defender Godwin Ekpo misses a second straight game after failing to pass a fitness test yesterday. Ekpo also missed last weekend's home game versus 3SC after spraining his knee in training few days before the game.
Midfielder Saheed Obisesan who made his second VFC appearance on Sunday, has bounced back from a back strain and is included in today's squad.
