Katsina United wingers Joshua Agboola and Tasiu Lawal have already caught the eye after just two matches in the NPFL and they are now set to run down Nasarawa United on Sunday for ‘The Changi Boys’ to record their second win of the new season.

If Tasiu was the man of the match in Katsina’s opening day 2-1 win over Gombe United at home, Agboola was the standout performer for the NNL champions when they fell 2-0 at high-flying Abia Warriors in midweek.

Jet-heeled Tasiu, 21, was snapped up from Niger Tornadoes and he has already justified his arrival by netting the first goal by Katsina on their return to the big time after a 15-year absence.

Agboola, on the other hand, shone despite his team losing 2-0 at Abia Warriors on Wednesday.

His ball skills and mazy dribble runs kept the defence of the home team on their toes for all 90 minutes.

The exciting player from the Abuja Football College, who turned 20 last week, has already posted a stint at Croatian club HNK Rijeka.

These two magical wingers can deliver Katsina another important win in front of their passionate fans.

Both teams clashed in pre-season with Nasarawa winning 2-1, but on Sunday three crucial league points will be at stake.

‘Solid Miners’ Nasarawa are yet to win this season after drawing at Wikki Tourists, before they were pegged back by champions Enugu Rangers in midweek.

They will count on experienced front men Abdulraham Bashir and Tayo Fabiyi to deliver the goals.
