NPFL Roundup – Match Day 6


NPFL leaders Plateau United failed to increase their lead at the top of the table after they were held to a goalless draw by Kano Pillars, while promoted Adamawa United smashed past Katsina United 4-0.

Pillars welcomed back captain Rabiu Ali from a long-term ban for gross misconduct and that must have boosted their confidence in Jos as they frustrated hosts Plateau United from another home win.

The Jos club now have 14 points from six matches, while Pillars climbed to third from bottom with three points from five matches.

Wikki Tourists, Akwa Starlets and Sunshine Stars all won at home.

There was also a shock win on the road for Delta Force at struggling Nasarawa United.

Solomon Enudi’s 34th minute goal from a free kick was the difference between the two teams in Lafia.

Delta Force will soon be taken over by Kwara United.
