Plateau head coach Kennedy Boboye said he expects the unbeaten run to end one day:

“I know that one day our unbeaten run in the league will come to an end, but not against Akwa United as I’m not really convinced and impressed with their performance in the clash.

“The attackers were poor. If they had converted the chances at goal, we would have even scored with Akwa United.

“Well, we have lost this particular match at Akwa United we will get back home to be ready for the clash against Niger Tornadoes.

“We will work very hard to reclaim the points as well as get back to winning ways once again,” said the former Abia Warriors and Sunshine Stars coach to supersport.com

Meanwhile, in other fixture El- kanemi secured a massive win of the day, after a comfortable 3-0 win over Gombe United, Nassarawa United also cruise past Abia Warriors with a 3-1 win at the Lafia City Stadium.

While Niger Tornadoes extended their unbeaten game to five games following a 1-0 victory over Enyimba.
