LBA names shortlists for June NPFL awards

FC IfeanyiUbah head coach, Yaw Preko, with his May LBA Manager Of The Month Award. 

The League Bloggers Awards (LBA) has revealed the four players and
four managers who will vie for the player and manager awards for the
month of June for performances in the Nigeria Professional Football
League (NPFL).

Nyima Nwagua of Kano Pillars, Anthony Okpotu of Lobi Stars, Adesina
Gata of ABS FC and Musa Newman of Akwa United will contend for the
player's award.

The quartet in contention for the manager's award are Ibrahim Musa of
Kano Pillars, Enyimba's Gbenga Ogunbote, Bala Nikyu of Wikki Tourists
and Chukwuma Agbo of Enugu Rangers.

Nwagua and Newman were very instrumental in their clubs' outing in the
month under review as they scored three goals each and provided an
assist apiece.

Lobi forward Okpotu helped himself to a hattrick in the same month
while Gata provided a treble of assists for ABS.

Musa and Agbo led Kano Pillars and Rangers respectively to unbeaten
streaks in June but the former guided his team to three home wins and
two draws on the road. Agbo oversaw Rangers' five-match unbeaten run
of two wins and three draws.

Ogunbote and Nikyu helped Enyimba and Wikki Tourists respectively to
amass 10 points apiece from five matches - winning three, drawing one
and losing one.

The winners for the June awards in the player and manager's categories
will be announced next week by the LBA.
