NPFL Wrap: Plateau, Enyimba suffer defeat as Kano, El-kanemi win

Plateau United suffered their second defeat in the Nigeria Professional Football League this season after losing 1-0 to FC Ifeanyiubah in Nnewi on Sunday, but remained top spot despite the loss.

The only goal of the game was netted in by Prince Aggreh via a penalty kick on the half hour mark after Godwin Obaje was fouled in the box.

El-Kanemi Warriors moved to the second position following a comfortable 2-0 home win against Nasarawa United.
