Niger Tornadoes winger, Wilfred Angels Ammeh is quite excited after his side edged out league champions, Plateau United from the Aiteo Cup championship yesterday.
The Ikon Allah Boys were forced to 2-2 draw by the Tin City side in Sunday’s Aiteo Cup quarterfinals reverse clash at the Rwang Pam Stadium in Jos.
The match could not hold on Saturday as early scheduled due to heavy downpour that made the turf unplayable.
The Minna landlords scored first off the foot of Ibrahim Babawo in the 25th minute while Isah Hussaini doubled the side lead from the penalty spot in the 40th minute to end the half as leaders.
Bature Yaro scored a brace from the penalty spot in the 52nd and 90th minute to even scores at 2-2 for the Jos side.
However, it was the Minna outfit that progressed to the Aiteo Cup semifinals on 4-2 aggregate after two unreplied goals win in the first fixture clash on Wednesday in Lokoja.
Ammeh said his side are well-poised and strengthened to go ahead to challenge for the Aiteo Cup podium dance.
Tornadoes will face title holders, FC IfeanyiUbah in the two-legged semifinals clash first in Lokoja on Saturday, September 30 and Wednesday, October 04 in Nnewi.
