Plateau United vs Nasarawa United

This is a case of a team who desperately need a win to continue their push for a place in the Super Six and another who looks dead although not buried for the NNL.

Nasarawa United are a shadow of themselves this season and unless they start getting results everywhere might play in the NNL next season.

Plateau United although have not lived up to expectations this season are still much in contention for the Super Six.

This North Central fixture promises to be interesting as both teams have their target as they meet today. A draw won't be a bad result for Nasarawa United who are really struggling to found their footings but for Plateau, a draw will cause damages to their Super Six ambition.
