Speaking to the media, the Plateau United coach said that his team is really going through some difficult patch.

“And we have a huge challenge in our defence line. We really need to put things in order because our last game against Bendel Insurance. The same goal, almost the same time, in the dying embers of the game.
“So we’ll do everything possible to get our heads in the game before we play Akwa United.”

“Great game and a first win against the best team in Nigeria, Enyimba, and one of the best teams so far I’ve played,” Fidelis Ilechukwu remarked after the game.
“I think we gave our best in today’s (Sunday) game in as much as we had a lot of challenges but I know in the coming days, Plateau United will become good,” the Coach disclosed.
