NPFL: Lobi Topple Plateau at the Summit


Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) leaders Plateau United were toppled from the top of the table for the first time this season yesterday as Lobi Stars stepped up to the No 1spot.

Lobi Stars defeated MFM FC 1-0 in Makurdi while Akwa United forced Plateau to a goalless draw in Jos.

Rivers United who lost in Uyo 2-1 to Dakkada FC however remain third on the NPFL log.
