Andrew Ikefe believes this season Plateau United have shown they can grind out wins with a solid defence.
The Tin City side currently sit second on the NPFL Table with 31 points from 15 games following their 3-0 thumping win over Akwa United on Sunday afternoon.
And centerback, Ikefe, who has been really fantastic at the back of Plateau United team, displayed great positional awareness to cut out the danger on several occasions, making four ball recoveries and five clearances.
He was too strong for Akwa United strikers to beat and committed to his defending to make series of interventions, while also consistently finding a considered and progressive out-ball from the back.. But with seven unbeaten run so far this season, Ikefe believes his side have evolved defensively.
“There’s really a bit more of a difference from last season in terms of how we’ve organised defensively,” Ikefe said in his post-game presser.
“We’re not conceding as many goals and we’re still getting results, sometimes grinding them out like we did today.
“Whichever way it comes and whichever margin it is, a win is a win at the end of the day and we’ve shown this season we can win in different ways.”
