The Nigerian topflight resumes this weekend, and the defender believes it will be harder compared to what was on offer in the first half of the season

Salomon Junior predicts a 'tougher' outing for Plateau United in the second round of the 2016/17 Nigerian topflight campaign.

The Kenedy Boboye-led side enjoyed a long stay at the top of the log and maintained it till the end of the first half of the season.

"I think the second round will be tougher than the first round because most teams reinforced their squad just like we have done. Teams in the league are now stronger and determined," Salomon told Goal.

"Because it's just like we are starting a new challenge we just have to improve on the results we had in the first round that's all.

"I don't think we have any advantage against the other teams.

"So I think it will be tough but we are up to the task and we will tackle it match by match.

"We will try our best to maintain the top spot but it won't be easy," he concluded.
