The reigning league champions have injury boost from their treatment table ahead of their Sunday tie with the Solid Miners

Plateau United will welcome the return of Benjamin Turba, Elisha Golbe and Salomon Junior for their tie against Nasarawa United in Jos.

The Peace Boys had close to 10 players unavailable for their last weekend loss to Katsina United where they recorded further two injuries with King Osanga and Raphael Ayagwa unable to complete the game.

The club’s team manager, Abel Iliya confirmed the availability of the three players and added that Dele Ajiboye and a few others are being looked at to see if they will be under consideration for the midweek duel with Lobi Stars.

“We have been having a difficult time with injuries to some of our players and this has reduced our chances of picking our best for league matches,” Iliya told Goal.

“We are however glad to inform you that Turba, Golbe, and Junior have fully recovered and are available for selection ahead of our game with Nasarawa United on Sunday. We also have other players too like Dele Ajiboye, Ibeh Johnson and others that have started training but are not fully back.

“We shall have more additional fit players for our midweek game with Lobi Stars. We are happy with the development and we have no doubt in our minds that these players’ return will boost our chances of picking six points in our next two home matches.”

Plateau United are fourth in the league table with 30 points from 19 matches.
