NPFL: Maikaba Reveals Reason behind Plateau Utd’s Consistency


first_img“Actually, our experience of last season helped in our preparation for this season. It was a lesson to us because we had to survive the relegation on the last day of the season.‘That is why we started preparations for this season very early; we noticed our problems from last season. In terms of playing personnel, we tried to recruit the players we felt will help us be better and started preparations very early. We played lots of friendlies, tournaments and it helped a lot. That is why you see that we are consistent this season”, the former Akwa United Coach stated.In addition to Plateau United, Rivers United and Lobi Stars have been the most consistent teams in the league this season and there has been a lot of talk from NPFL pundits that this season title will be fought between the three teams but Abdul Maikaba differs.According to Maikaba, it is too early to label a particular team or teams title contenders or favorites as there are still teams with outstanding matches.However, he praised the level of competitiveness of the NPFL this season and believes that it is only a matter of time before the league starts benefitting from it financially.“I do not believe that it is a three-way battle for the NPFL. In fact it is too early for us to tag a team or teams favorite because we are not yet half way through the season and we still have teams like Rangers, Enyimba that have outstanding matches.‘If they win all of their outstanding matches [which is totally possible] then they are back in contention to win the league. However, the fact that we are having a very competitive league is very good. If we continue in this way, it will only be a matter of time before we start benefitting financially.’ Maikaba told www.npfl.ngPlateau United are currently 2nd on the log, two points behind league leaders, Lobi Stars and level on points with Rivers United whom they face at home on Sunday.Maikaba revealed that Plateau United will approach the match with every seriousness and determination.“It’s an important match to us and equally to Rivers United because we are second and third on the log. We are going to approach the match with every seriousness.“We are going to prepare very well because we know we are going to face a team that is aspiring for the title. We are going to work hard throughout the week and hopefully we will take advantage on match-day. For sure, it’s not going to be an easy match but I assure our fans that we would not let them down.’Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Abdu Maikaba After his first season at Plateau United which saw the former champions struggle, Abdu Maikaba has enjoyed a brilliant start to the 2019/2020 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season placing second on the table after 17 games.
