NPFL : Match Day Eleven Twist And Turns


.Plateau United Dropped Points Against Abia Warriors

It was more or less a surprise getting to see the final score charts of the Match day 11 of the NPFL 19/20 season.

Plateau United were for the second time this season condemned to a defeat in the middle of thier stand out and classic shows into the season.

A wide margin 3-0 results was effected on them as they visited Umuhaia to locked horn with Abia Warriors and that has placed them on a pressure driven moment.

Although we can’t rule out their influence in the league yet out as they still maintain the first occupation of the log with 21 points, 3 slim points away from their closest challenger, Lobi Stars who also went back to Makurdi from Akwa with 1-0 defeat.

.Sunshine Stars 1-1 Dakkada FC

Fuad Ekelojuoti was able to restore back hope for Sunshine Stars in the encounter as they shared spoils with Dakkada FC.

Owena whales almost fell to the hand of the newly Christened Dakkada FC but many thanks to Fuad Ekelojuoti brilliant efforts who scored in the last minute of the game to put to a rest a deafening stories that may be enlivened in the camp of the Sunshine who are still in the imagination of their defeat in the match day 10 of the season.

.And Katsina United Won!

Goal thriller at Katsina as United defeated Jigawa Golden Stars 3-2.

It was a closely contested game as it produced 5 goals at the end.

Tasiu lawal, the striker of the Katsina United again lived up to expectations as he scored two decisive goals for Coach Makinwa led side.

Opening the scoreline in the 15th minutes of the game, Tasiu would later change the narratives of the game at the 70th minutes of the game with his goal eventually making the much needed difference yearnings from their fans base.

It was a good day for the Coach Makinwa boys as they now seats 12th on the log, at least a fair progress by the standard of their not to impressive campaign into the season so far.

.Oriental Derby Had FC IfeanyiUbah As The Winner

Coach Ilechukwu led side yet again tasted another defeat and this time around from their Zonal top flight side.

It was another abyss performance that continue to question the credibility of the former MFM gaffer.

This in many ways communicating a lot of negative impression about the Imo state owned team,and of course the trend might need more to be controlled.

Prescriptively, a bow to the ongoing mid season Transfer would help at least!.

.Kwara United Again!

.Warri Wolves 2-1 Kwara United

Not a new comer in top flight again, 3 lost from 4 games tells again whether the team is ready for thier new status or not.

Though it has always been narrow defeat, much better for the Harmony boys is the pressing need and swift reply to this awful moment.

The right mentality is needed to be inspired and instilled in to the team as they are now in a more dangerous and fragile stage of the campaign.

For Kwara United, it might need more than tapping from the mid-season transfer market, an excellent interpretation of tactical and technical instructions on the squad needs to be honed with right attitude of delivery before things get out of hand.

.Rivers Edges Out Adamawa At Home

The only away win emerging from the fixtures. Coach Stanley Eguma was the happiest man on earth after a convincing away win over Adamawa United.

A match wholly dominated by Rivers United, Junior Osaghe opened the score line 25 minutes into the first half of the game while Malachi Ohawume 87th strike complement the efforts of the visiting Rivers.

The victory saw the ‘pride of rivers’ moved into continental column as they are now level on points with the second placed Lobi Stars on the log with 18 points from 11 matches.

.Lobi Stars Also Tastes Second Defeat

Lobi Stars narrowly lost to Akwa United in the match played at Godswill Akpabio International stadium.

Coach Ogunbote boys after a no goal first half lost the control of the game and could not pull up any wonder after Orok Akarandut struck in the 51st minutes of the encounter, like Plateau they also tasted their second defeat.

Akwa United now stands 8th on the log with with 16 points from 11 games.
