Fidelis Ilechukwu was the first manager of Church Club, MFM FC, when they joined the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL), however he departed two seasons ago for Heartland, and then Plateau United.

Plateau United traveled to Lagos for their MatchDay 3 match against MFM, and the host team’s captain, Shola Balogun, admitted that he had restless nights preparing for the Jos squad. Balogun remarked after the game that he was pleased with his team’s 1-0 victory at the Teslim Balogun Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Precious Roland scored a 55th-minute free header from an Adikwu Moses cross to give the Lagos team the victory.

“My former boss (Fidelis Ilechukwu) joining Plateau United did not help matters. He was the one who brought me to MFM in the first place. He pondered my existence. He knows everything there is to know about me, and he can shift the game on a dime. With the triumph, all of that dread has vanished, and I can guarantee MFM fans that brighter days are ahead, as the door has been opened.”

Coach Hamza Abara of Plateau United stated that his team was simply unlucky.

“We hoped to win and gave it our all, but the outcome was disappointing. That, my friends, is football.”
