2023/2024 NPFL Match Day 13: Plateau United FC highest gainer with sweet victory over Niger Tornadoes

Posted : 10 December 2023

Plateau United FC stunned Niger Tornadoes FC in Katsina on Sunday after a thrilling five-goal match, which the Peace Boys earned with a well-deserved 3-2 victory over the Ikon Allah Boys.

In one of the most entertaining matches of the season, Plateau United FC opened the floodgates of goals in the third minute as Plateau United FC's Harrison Ebah pounced on a loose ball to give his side a goal advantage.

Harrison Ebah's goal in the 3rd minute is significant, as it was the first goal the team has conceded at home so far this season.

Not satisfied with the goal, Niger Tornadoes fought back and leveled the score with the 52nd-minute goal as Bashir Usman drew his side level with a glancing header.

The Ikon Allah Boys doubled the lead in the 71st minute as Yahuza Bala was pulled down in the box, and the referee pointed to the spot. Bashir Usman converted the penalty, joining the ranks of the highest goal scorers.

Aliko Mustapha left his line, and the player tipped the ball into the net, beating the offside trap to level the match at 2-2.

Plateau United was rewarded for their unrelenting efforts, pulling ahead after a defensive error.

The match ended 3-2 in favor of Plateau United.

The win takes Plateau to 6th place in the table with 19 points, just one point behind 5th-placed Bendel Insurance, who secured a 1-0 victory over visiting Sunshine Stars, courtesy of Benjamin Tanimu's penalty goal in the 4th minute.
