Dolphins will be without three key players for Sunday’s decisive League match-up against Sunshine Stars at Ijebu Ode.
Kola Awe and Uche Oguchi are nursing injuries while Mike Simon lost a close relative on the eve of departure to Ibadan midweek and asked to be left out of the team to return home.
However, 17 players travelled with Dolphins for the game rather than 20 since Dolphins have three players in camp at Ibadan with the Nigeria Under-23 team.
Emeka Atuloma, Festus Austin and Emem Eduok will join the rest of the team from Ibadan.
Dolphins will move on to Ilorin from Ijebu Ode to keep a date with Bukola Babes in another crucial road game for the Port Harcourt based League title contenders.
