The Afonja Warriors have been selected as www.halftimeng.com Glo Professional Football League (GPFL) team of the week as they picked their 13th point on an away ground this season when they stunned Heartland Fc 0-1 on Sunday at the Dan Anyiam Stadium in Owerri.
The award for the best player of the week is between two strikers as they both netted twice for their respective club. Bishop Onyeudo scored twice for Enyimba International as the Aba Warriors beat Nembe City by 2-0 on Sunday, he got the first goal via a header and the second through a spot kick. Kingsley Eduwo of Shooting Stars on the hand struck twice for the Oluyole Warriors as they pummeled the League Champions, Kano Pillars 3-1 on Sunday in Ibadan. Although both players were exceptional for their teams; we have chosen the Former Gateway front-man, Kingsley Eduwo as our player of the week.
The technical input of Samson Unuanel can not be overlooked as his team, Kwara United crushed Heartland Fc at home by 0-1, thereby recording their third away win this season and the 14th in the League in general this season. Samson Unuanel is the outstanding Coach for Week 24 .
Week 24 awards are as follows:

We have opted for a lop sided 4-4-2 formation for our best eleven in order to accomodate the hot shots of the week; Bishop Onyeudo and Kingsley Eduwo, Okiemute Odah will be in goal due to his top notch performance on Sunday against Nasarawa United as he helped Warri Wolves pick a point on the road when he made breathe-taking save after save including a spot kick.
