Kwara United Football Club will take on Sunshine Stars of Akure on Thursday evening at the Akure Stadium as both teams intensify preparations for the upcoming Nigeria Professional Football League campaign.
The Harmony Boys landed in Akure on Wednesday evening, aftermath of a 7-0 drubbing of Lama Academy in Ilorin on Sunday.
Kwara United who missed out on a continental slot on the last day of 2021 NPFL season, recruited new players and are trying to fine-tune and know the teams depth.
General Manager of Club, Bashir Badawiy explained that the friendly against Sunshine Stars will give the management and coaching crew an hindsight of the team strength and weaknesses.
For Sunshine Stars, it's a new Dawn for the Akure gunners having escaped the Drop last campaign when Coach Deji Ayeni came to cement the club's position in the top flight.
Despite the Ondo state government authorising a private firm with full responsibility of overseeing the affairs of the club, they have recruited new legs and are optimistic of having a good season.
