Before now the team that was captained by Leicester City of England striker, Ahmed Musa was fully contained by the Jos based side even to the admiration of the fans who were sympathetic to them.

However, the standard of the game changed in the second half when the seeming first team led by captain Mikel Obi entered.

The combination of Kelechi Ihenacho and Arsenal sensation, Alex Iwobi was a handful of trouble for the Plateau boys who conceded another goal scored by Iwobi.
