FORMATION: 3 - 5 - 2

The defender has added goals to his name this term and netted the winner against Remo Stars in Jos. It's his fifth goal of the campaign.
Jimoh Gbadamosi (Heartland)

Fahad Usman (Kano Pillars)
The full back provided the assist for the goal and was generally good on the day.
Ishaw Rafiu ((Rivers United)
The top scorer in the league this term added to his tally against Tornadoes. He was a delight in the game as his side retained their four-point lead at the top.
Bello Babatunde (Akwa United)
For the second week running he makes our TOTW. He scored the winner and had an excellent outing against the Makurdi side in Uyo.
Samuel Oyedeji (Gombe United)
The midfielder put in a decent shift. He assisted the goal and had a fun time in the middle of the park against the Changi Boys.
Nelson Esor (Rivers United)
Esor came off the bench in the first half and provided two assists in the game to help his side continue their rich vein of form in the title race.

The midfielder had a fine game and only a goal was missing from his performance. He was highly influential and played a part in most of the attacking plays his team made.
Ossy Martins (Enugu Rangers)
The forward punished Kwara United in the game with his two goals. In just two games this term, he has scored three times against the Harmony boys. What a feat!
Moses Omoduemeuke (Shooting Stars)
