Plateau United coach Abdu Maikaba says the Peace Boys must be consistent in the remaining matches of the campaign in order to claim the 2019/2020 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) title.
The Jos-based outfit are currently on the summit of the NPFL standings with 49 points from 25 matches, four points ahead of second-placed Rivers United (45pts), as the league proceeds on an indefinite suspension due to fears over the spread of the deadly Coronavirus.
Speaking exclusively to www.busybuddiesng.com, the former Akwa United gaffer informed that the 2017 NPFL champions will be seeking to widen the gap between her and the chasing pack on the log, as they eye a second league triumph in four years.
“To win the league, we have to be consistent, and we don’t relent in our efforts,” the soft-spoken tactician said. “We’ll continue to work hard so that, at least, we widen the gap between us and the second-placed (team).
“Maybe, before the last week of the league, we would be able to say ‘we can win the league.
“Now that we are four points clear of the second-placed team (Rivers United), we’ll continue to put efforts so that we widen gap. And if that should be the case, it means, maybe, before the final weeks of the competition, we can be able to celebrate that we have won the league.”
