The match was earlier scheduled for Thursday.

The Nigeria Football League clubs, Bayelsa United of Yenagoa and Gateway FC of Abeokuta, will now trade tackles on Friday at the FIFA Goal Project, Abuja, in the 2014 Men Federation Cup Round of 16 match.

Earlier scheduled for Thursday, the game was moved by 24 hours after Gateway FC appealed to the Nigeria Football Federation for time to recover from a Nigeria National League clash with Go-Round FC of Port Harcourt in Abeokuta on Tuesday.

“We have decided to move the match to Friday at the same venue since Bayelsa United FC tendered “No objection” to the appeal,” Ruth David, Head of the Federation Cup Unit, told journalists in Abuja on Thursday.

All the other seven matches in the Round of 16 were played on Thursday, but yet to be concluded as at the time of this report.
