Plateau United, Katsina United Set Off With Goalless Draw

The derby between Katsina United and Plateau United in the Nigeria Professional Football League has finished goalless.

The match played at the Muhammed Dikko Stadium in Katsina on Saturday saw both sides creating chances but couldn’t convert to goals.

In the opening minutes of the match, Rasheed Ahmed had a chance to score for the hosts but fired wide. Moments later, the visitors had a goal attempt when Mohammed Zukifilu fired from way out but was stopped by goalkeeper Yusuf Mohammed.

The home side, Katsina United, were hoping to return to winning ways after their 1-0 loss to Nasarawa United in Lafia on matchday 5 but didn’t do enough to get maximum points from the former league champions.

Coach Abdul Maikaba’s team had another opportunity in the 37th minute when Isah Ndala shot from a distance, again, goalkeeper Mohammed produced a fine save to keep Katsina United in the game.

The result means Katsina United is winless in three games now, recording just two wins in six matches.

On matchday five, Plateau United beat Adamawa United 3-0 and will take the precious point from Katsina back to Jos to prepare for their next match against the impressive Nasarawa United.

Matchday six action in the Nigeria Professional Football League will resume on Sunday with some fixtures that include Rangers taking on Lobi Stars in Enugu, Warri Wolves will host Nasarawa United, Heartland FC will play Akwa United in Owerri while Abia Warriors will lock horns with MFM Football Club of Lagos at the Okigwe Township Stadium.
