The final playoff spot in Group A will go down to the wire on Sunday after third-placed Enyimba and MFM FC, who are fourth on the table, both won at home today.
Enyimba stopped Niger Tornadoes 2-0, while MFM FC beat Katsina United 2-1 at the death.
On the final day of the regular season, Enyimba will be guests of Katsina United and MFM FC visit Sunshine Stars.
