Christian Pyagbara and Alhassan Ibrahim goals in Uyo yesterday ended Plateau United’s eight match unbeaten run in the Nigerian Professional League.
The League leaders could not come to terms with their defeat at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo.
Substitute, Chima Ndukwu’s consolation goal proved nothing against the crucial goals scored by Christian Pyagbara and Alhassan Ibrahim for the Uyo outfit.
Plateau coach, Kennedy Boboye cried that his attackers were not clinical in front of goal.
“I know that one day our unbeaten run in the league will come to an end but not against Akwa United. I’m not really convinced and impressed with their performance in the clash.
“Our attackers were poor. If they had converted the chances at goal we would have even scored more goals.
“We’ll get back home to be ready for the clash against Niger Tornadoes.”
Plateau United still lead the 20-team top-flight with 17 points despite the defeat in Uyo.
