Plateau Coach Slams Team


Coach of Plateau United, Ndubuisi Nduka, was annoyed with his players for losing many scoring chances  in their rescheduled Nigeria Premier League, NPL, game decided on Tuesday at the Old Parade Ground,  Abuja.

The pressure continued to mount on embattled Nduka as his side lost  again at home to a fired up  Sharks FC.

Victor Ezeji’s cold blooded finish condemned the newly promoted side to 1-0 loss and their 8th defeat  this season, which has singled them out as one of the biggest candidates for relegation at the end of  the season.

“I am  tired of saying this every time,  but if we had converted even half of the chances we  created  in all the games we have played this season, we would have been on top of the table,” he told

“We always outplay our opponents but our strikers did not live up to expectations. We still have a lot  of matches to play and I am confident we will turn things around soon,” he said.

Sharks had been thrashed 3-0 in last weekend’s league duel by Warri Wolves, but such a score line was  never on the cards this time around as John Obuh’s men dominated the opening exchanges and came close  on no less than three occasions through Bright Ejike and Victor Ezeji.

Ezeji was to get the winner late on in the game and despite a spirited effort at launching a comeback,  the homers failed to break down a well-drilled Sharks defence.
