Coach Kennedy Boboye has said Plateau United have been lifted for next weeka��s CAF Champions League clash against Etoile Sahel after they regained top spot in the NPFL following a 1-0 home win over Enugu Rangers.
A 77thA�minute header by former Rangers defender Chizoba Amaefule, was all that the defending champions needed to reclaim the top spot with 18 points.
a�?The win was very important to us even as we go into the next round of our continental matches knowing that we are at the top of the league,a�? said Boboye.
a�?It was a tough game against a highly tactical team that came here to play for a draw, but we are happy that we got our three points at the end of the day.a�?
Unlikely goal hero Amaefule said: a�?It is a thing of joy because I scored against my former team Rangers and the goal gave us all three points.
a�?The game was not an easy one as Rangers showed why they were champions two seasons back.
a�?No doubt, the journey back from Cameroon took its toll on the team.a�?
