Plateau Utd versus Rivers Utd on Sunday

Saturday, 26 August 2017


Nine more points are all Rivers United require to preserve their status as a member of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) for another season.

The Port Harcourt side will face the league leaders in Jos on Sunday knowing that claiming a win at the Rwang Pam Stadium, Jos will represent the biggest upset in the NPFL this term.

Plateau United have not lost any game at home this season and United have only won once, away from home this term (against relegated Remo Stars).

Baring a dramatic combination of results in the final three round of matches of the season, six points  will be enough to see Plateau United claim their first ever top flight title and they will be looking to tame the ‘Pride of Rivers’ in front of vociferous home support on Sunday.

Dele Ajiboye returns in goal for Plateau United after missing out on the 0-2 defeat to ABS FC in Illorin following his national team commitments.

Damian Longbap, Lazarus Fan, Ogene Elijah, Hamisu Sale and long throw specialist, Daniel Itodo are some of the individuals head coach of Plateau United, Kennedy Boboye will be relying on to deliver the goods.

Ibeh Johnson, Mafang Pam, Kabiru Umar, Benjamin Turba and Anayo Ogbonna are other key dramatis personae that can cause damage to the Pride of Rivers’ aspirations of remaining in the country’s elite division.

The mood in the Rivers United camp is not exactly far from gloomy following the demise of the club’s kit man, Uduak ‘Amanaman’ James following a brief illness.

Boboye and the Rivers United captain, Festus Austine spoke to our official website, about the prospects of their respective sides ahead of Sunday’s game.
