Plateau United remain top of NPFL standings

Plateau United yesterday defeated visiting Abia Warriors FC of Umuahia 2-1 at the Rwang Pam Stadium to remain top of the standing in the ongoing Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).

With the victory, Plateau United now has 13 points from first five games to remain unbeaten in the Nigerian top flight.

The Jos-based soccer lords show the intention early in the game when Golbe Elisha scored five minutes into the encounter from a free kick before enterprising Godwin Zaki equalised with a well-taken shot from outside the penalty area which beat goalkeeper John Gaadi.

Plateau United restored their lead in the 43rd minute, when an Abia Warriors defender handled the ball in the penalty area.
