10-man Sunshine Stars suffers a 1- 2 defeat in the hand of Plateau United who have now extended their lead at the top of the table in the Nigeria Professional Football League. Ezekiel Thompson gave hosts Sunshine Stars, playing behind closed doors as punishment for crowd trouble, the lead in the 34th minute before Emmanuel Odafe equalised for Plateau on 62 minutes. Emeka Umeh scored the winning goal in the final minute to seal the win for Plateau United. Sunshine Stars keeper David Ariyo was sent off for protesting the goal.

In Makurdi, a hat-trick from Anthony Okpotu gave Lobi Stars a 3-1 win against MFM FC. Three first half goals by Okpotu in the 20th, 28th and 31st minute, gave Lobi their 10th win of the campaign. The defeat means MFM drop to fourth on 37 points in the league table.
