Head coach of Plateau United, Abdu Makaiba said he’s excited with the win over Nasarawa United, but admitted his side still has a lot to work to do
A 36th-minute header from Mohammed Zulfikilu gave the 2017 NPFL champions a 1-0 win over their rivals at the New Jos Stadium on Friday.
The victory extended Plateau United’s unbeaten run six matches with their last defeat coming on the opening day of the season.
Speaking after the game, Plateau United gaffer Abdu Makaiba admitted that Nasarawa United gave his wards a great fight.
“I feel excited to have won the game against Nasarawa United because we knew even before the kickoff that it will be a difficult game,” Maikaba told the press after the victory over the Solid Miners.
“We are happy to have won which was actually the target, now we are three points behind Nasarawa United who tops the table, I believe we are getting closer so with time the team will continue to improve. We won’t relent.”
The highly rated tactician will lead his wards to Delta state for week 8 fixture Warri Wolves in Ozoro and Maikaba fancy the chances of his team to get another important victory.
“Actually we take each game as it comes, so the next one against Warri Wolves is not going to be different. We are going all out to make sure that we get our first away win of the season as it will catapult us to top three on the log.” he said.
