NPFL Matchday 20 Results

Plateau United couldn’t extend their lead in the table after being held to a 1-1 draw away to Katsina United on matchday 20 in the Nigeria Professional Football League on Sunday. Katsina United took an early lead in the fourth minute through Chinedu Udechukwu but Plateau United equalised in the 59th minute thanks to Daniel Itodo. Plateau maintain their leadership in the league table as they are now on 36 points.
MFM could not take advantage of Plateau’s draw as they were held to a 0-0 draw by 10-man Akwa United at the Agege Stadium. MFM had a golden chance to take the lead on 32 minutes but NPFL top scorer Stephen Odey missed from the penalty spot after Kodjovi Dadzie handled the ball inside the box and in the 87th minute Akwa United were reduced to 10 men after Aremu Azeez was sent off for a second bookable offence. MFM remain second on 34 points, two points off leaders Plateau United.

In Ibadan, Shooting Stars suffered a heavy home defeat after they were spanked 3-0 by 10-men FC IfeanyiUbah. Godwin Obaje opened the scoring for FC IfeanyiUbah in the second minute before Pascal Seka doubled the visitors’ lead on 14 minutes. Shooting Stars had the chance to reduce the deficit but Adebayo Abayomi’s 27th minute penalty was saved by Ikechukwu Ezenwa. In the 72nd minute, IfeanyiUbah were reduced to 10 men following Bright Onyedikachi’s sending off but it was IfeanyiUbah who had the final say as King Osanga wrapped up the scoring on 87 minutes.
