NPFL Final Day clash Plateau United vs Heartland abandoned

The NPFL final day match between Plateau United and Heartland at the Rwang Pam Stadium in Jos was abandoned with 20 minutes left on the clock, according to officials.

Heartland spokesman Cajetan Nkwopara claimed the home team’s fans invaded the pitch 20 minutes from time when his club scored a second goal.

However, another version of the story said the Heartland goal was not recorded and so the Owerri club refused to continue with the game.

Before that incident, scores were tied at 1-1, which was what the league’s official Twitter account reported, while marking it as inconclusive.

Heartland need to win that match to stand any chance of escaping relegation.

They are neck-and-neck with MFM FC and Warri Wolves in this relegation dog fight.

Ten-man MFM won their home match 1-0 against FC IfeanyiUbah and Warri Wolves were also 1-0 winners at home against Ikorodu United.
