Plateau United On A Winning Start at 2018 CAF Champions League Campaign - Trash Eding Sports of Cameroon at Home


Nigerian champions Plateau United started their campaign in the CAF Champions League on a resounding note by defeating Eding Sports of Cameroon  3-0 in their preliminary round, first leg fixture at the New Jos Stadium this Sunday.


Oghene Elijah, Sunday Ingbede and Joshua Obaje were all on target for the Tin City club against the Cameroonian champions.


Eding Sports travelled to Nigeria without their head coach Ancient Foe Mbarga following disagreement between him and club president Saint Fabien Mvogo but still pushed Plateau United hard in the game especially in the second half.


The hosts were awarded a penalty in the 20th minute when an Eding Sports defender handled the ball in the box.


Tosin Omoyele who has bagged three goals for Plateau United in the Nigeria Professional Football League this season took the resultant penalty but his effort was saved by the goalkeeper with Elijah firing the rebound into the net.


The visitors dominated proceedings in the second half and had a goal rightly chalked off for offside in the 82nd minute.


They went further down two minutes later when  Ingbede beat the offside trap and fired the ball home.


Substitute Obaje added the third in added time following a fantastic through pass by Rapheal Ayagwa.
