Heartland’s worries continued as the Jos lords clinched their first win of the season
Plateau United were in their most brilliant element as they secured a commanding 3-0 victory over fellow strugglers Heartland FC on Sunday afternoon.
Both sides had not win any of their matches before kickoff but it was the Jos-based outfit who turned up at the stadium to force a bitter defeat down the throat of the visitors.
Muhammadu Zulkifilu gave the hosts the lead in the 19th minute when he headed past Heartland keeper Ejiogu.
It was two-nil to Plateau United ten minutes after the break when Amos Gyang scored from the penalty spot to extend their lead.
And the rout was completed on the hour mark, as Jesse Akila squeezed in his attempt from a tight angle to give Plateau a commanding lead.
Plateau United, with their first win of the season, now boast four points from their three matches while Heartland continue the search for their maiden win of the campaign.
At the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt, Rivers United made it three wins out of three with a convincing 2-0 victory over high-flying Kwara United.
