Plateau Utd v Akwa United @Jos International Stadium @4pm on February 27
The new coach at Plateau United, Fidelis Ilechukwu is working wonders this season as his side embarks on an unbeaten run that has taken his team just shy of the top of the Nigeria Professional Football League table. A win from Plateau United will give them a comfortable lead on top of the table.
But Sunday’s opponents, Akwa United, are also on a six-match unbeaten run that has seen them keep three clean sheets and concede three goals-two in their last home game against Dakkada.
Plateau United are one point behind log leaders, Rivers United, and five points better than Sunday opponents.
In Jos, Plateau United has won all seven previous NPFL matches at the Jos Stadium, scoring 21 goals and conceding just three. This looks like an arduous task for the visitors to get anything but that is why we love football.
Current Form: Plateau Utd [D-W-W-W-W]; Akwa United [W-W-D-D-D]
