Nigeria’s elite football league – Globacom Premier League 2014/15 season kicked off over the weekend with some surprising results on match-day one. Against all permutations, only the four newly promoted clubs – Gabros International, FC Taraba, Wikki Tourist and El-Kanemi recorded home victories against their highly rated opponents on match day one. While the encounter between Heartland FC and the reigning champions, Kano Pillars could not come up due to the latter’s armed-robbery attacks last week, the opening day fixture was a game many regular premier league teams would love to forget in a hurry.
