Speaking shortly after the match, Plateau United’s Head Coach, Abdu Maikaba, said despite some changes in the squad, the boys played very well because they know what the team wanted.

He said the changes he made in their starting eleven were necessary, after losing away to Nasarawa United in Lafia last week.

On his part, Ortega Deniran, the Head Coach of Warri Wolves, expressed sadness for losing the encounter, but promised to do better in their subsequent matches.
