Odey increases goal tally as MFM keep up Plateau United chase

NPFL leading goal scorer, Stephen Odey, helped his side MFM FC to a crucial win over Katsina United with his goal no. 18 this season.

The game, which was rescheduled from Sunday due to heavy downpour in Lagos, ended 3-2 on Monday in favour of the home side.

League leaders, Plateau United had on Sunday dropped points after an away 0-0 draw with Lobi Stars, which second-placed MFM have taken advantage of.

Goals from Odey and Sikiru Olatunbosun put MFM ahead in the first half of the game.
