Based on points per game, the top 6 would be;

2 Rivers United........13........1.8000
3 Enyimba...............10........1.8000
4 Lobi Stars..............7.........1.7200

According to npfl insider.

Plateau Utd and Enyimba will compete in the #CAFCL while Rivers Utd will compete in the #CAFCC next season.

Rivers is ahead of Enyimba so I wonder what criteria they are using. Perhaps the logic is;
CAFCL: current table toppers (Plateau) and defending Champions (Enyimba) who technically have not been dethroned since Plateau will likely not be declared champions.
CAFCC: the next team on the table (Rivers)

Or maybe goal difference is not the next tie breaker after points/game.
.............................P..........GD........Pts/G
1 Plateau United......25.......21........1.9600
2 Rivers United........25.......13........1.8000
3 Enyimba..............20........10........1.8000

If they use GD/game, Rivers (0.52) is still ahead of Enyimba (0.50). Curious to know their reasons.

We Demand Justice and Fairness from NFF – 3SC
By
Tosin Adeniji -
June 26, 2020
3SC

The management of Shooting Stars Sports Club (3SC) of Ibadan, wishes to call on the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), to allow justice and fairness prevail in its final decision making on the ongoing debate on how to end the 2019/20 season.

In view of the resolution by clubs in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL), calling for the cancelation of the entire season including that of the Nigeria National League (NNL) and other leagues, we hereby register our rejection of the move.

To put the record straight, we state unequivocally, that 3SC as a club, has no business dabbling into the issues of the NPFL, which is a separate league on its own.

NPFL clubs’ decision to end the season, using the Point Per Game (PPG) format to determine who wins the league and which teams pick continental tickets, is none of our business.

In fact, we don’t have any issue about their decision not to relegate any club, a decision, they might have taken for reasons best known them.

However, our concern is centered on the resolution of the LMC or NPFL to call for the cancelation of the 2019/20 season. of the NNL.

We wish to state categorically here that, since the NNL is not an appendage of the NPFL, it has no right whatsoever to take any decision on the running of the NNL.

Therefore, approving the proposal of the NPFL by the NFF, is unreasonable, disrespectful and infringing on the right of clubs in the NNL.

We therefore reject in totality the proposal of the NPFL, which means that no team will be promoted into the premier division.

The NFF should know, that giving its nod to the proposal, portends great danger for the Nigerian league, considering the fact that NNL clubs are also part of the league and therefore, deserved to be carried along in decision making as stakeholders.

We regard the proposal of canceling the season as inhuman, unfair and high level wickedness as it showed that those behind it are less concerned about the 42 clubs participating in the NNL.

For instance, 3SC as a club, started preparing for the 2019/20 season since a year ago and you will recall that the season did not start until the tail end of October.

In preparing for the season, human efforts and huge resources were involved. We are therefore irked that canceling the season, will amount to waste of human efforts and financial resources, pumped in by the financier of the club (the Oyo State Government).

We wonder why and how the risk of embarking on rigours and tortuous journeys to different parts of the country, with attendant insecurity in some places, coupled with tax payers money spent on the club by its financier, were not considered by the apostles of NNL cancelation.

We want to bring to your notice that 3SC , have not stopped paying our players since the league went on break in December and even despite the economic challenges caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

As I am writing this, our players are already getting alertz for the salary of the month of June.

In addition, how do we go about the money spent on securing the services of players from other clubs, securing licenses through the registration of the players, as well as huge money spent on officials, staff and other logistics for the season. Should we just allow all these to go down the drain.

We sincerely believe that common sense should prevail.

As it is, we are of the opinion that the NNL season and brouhaha surrounding the whole issue can be settled through any of the following formats.

1.If the NFF eventually approves or accepts the use of PPG in the NPFL, same can be applied in the NNL

2. A playoff of the two top teams in each group of the NNL can be organized to determine the four clubs that will be promoted to the NPFL and

3. Since the NPFL clubs have agreed that no team will be relegated, we can have a 24 team format just like we had it in the 2017/18 season.

We are appealing to the NFF to toe the path of honour, honesty and transparency in taking a decision that would be acceptable to every stakholder in the Nigerian league, which of course include clubs in the NPFL, NNL, NLO and the NWPL for the good of the game and for the sake of fair play, which is the slogan of the world football governing body, FIFA.

It will do the country’s league good, if the Sport Ministry and other relevant bodies concerned can allow justice and fairness to be the order of the day in order to save our football from kiosk.

Your man YemiB was very happy with the NPFL decision on this thread :taunt: :taunt:

Head to head Enyimba will finish second, but goal difference it's Rivers united in second. It will unfair to use head to head because Enyimba only played one match against Rivers United.

It will be logical to use goal difference.

I agree. Head to head is meaningful only if both teams had opportunity to play each other at home because historically a home game makes a difference, PARTICULARLY in the NPFL. If there were no such games (i.e. 2 games, with each team having a home game against the other) it is fairer to use goal difference.

LOL. My early forecast is that the start timeline will be changed as is ALWAYS the case.
