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.”

Plateau United started their campaign with 3-3 draw against Shooting Stars, before losing to Bendel Insurance.

Plateau United however needed a late strike from substitute Kazeem Ogunleye to seal the win over Enyimba FC.

The victory over Enyimba is their first of the campaign, and Ilechukwu expressed delight with the outcome of the “difficult” game.

“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.

Plateau United will be guest to Akwa United at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo.

KRC Genk has signed Nigerian forward Toluwalase Arokodare on the transfer deadline day.

Genk was in the market for a direct replacement for Paul Onuachu, who left for Southampton, and quickly turned to Arokodare who was on the verge of signing for Anderlecht.

The Nigerian was at Neerpede on Tuesday night, having his medicals.

However the striker later left Neerpede and drove straight to Genk after receiving a call from Genk’s Director of football Dimitri De Conde.

Arokodare then signed four-and-half year deal from Valmiera although he had played on loan at French division two side, Amiens.

The deal is reportedly worth €4.5m which could rise to €7m at the end of the contract.

Arokodare netted eight times and provided two assists for Amiens.

Meanwhile, Anderlecht turned their attention to Islam Slimani, the 34-year-old striker from Stade Brest, after the deal for Arokodare fell through.
