Akwa United have moved to fifth on the Nigeria Professional Football League table after a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Plateau United on matchday 11 at the Nest of Champions in Uyo.
Charles Atshimene scored his second goal of the season to give the Promise Keepers their fifth win of the season.
It was also a match of two opposing managers. Akwa United manager, Kennedy Boboye previously managed Plateau United. Abdul Maikaba handed over to Coach Boboye when he moved to Plateau United.
Akwa United, still trying to recover from the pain of defeat on matchday 10 by Nasarawa United, understood they cannot make the sort of errors that caused their fall in Lafia.
