NPFL24: Bendel Insurance FC, Plateau United Match Holds Saturday
Following the adjustment in the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) Match Day Three fixtures, the midweek match involving Bendel Insurance Football Club of Benin and Plateau United of Jos was rescheduled to be held on Saturday, October 14, 2023.
According to the league management circular, the match, earlier scheduled for Wednesday, October 11 is now expected to be held on Saturday at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin. Kick-off time is 4:00 PM.
The Benin Arsenals and Plateau United met twice last season with the former picking four points out of the six points available in the two-legged fixture. Insurance defeated the former league champions 2-1 at the Samuel Ogbemudia stadium and later pulled a 1-1 away draw in Jos.
The Benin Arsenals began the 2023/24 football season last weekend with a convincing 2-0 win, over Shooting Stars and hope to continue in that fashion on Saturday.
Insurance returned to the premier league last season after many years in relegation and finished the season in the fifth position after Super Six. The Benin Arsenals had finished the abridged league without losing any match before going ahead to win the FA Cup.
All eyes are on the current Federation Cup champions as they have already started the new season on a winning note.
