Lagos – Isa Danladi, Plateau United goalkeeper, has cautioned his teammates that the relegation battle in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) is not yet over even as they are seemed to have escaped.
Danladi in an interview with Goal said, “When I joined Plateau United, they were in the relegation zone and to the glory of God the club has moved out of the danger zone but the battle isn’t over yet.”
The Jos side is presently eight points above the relegation zone, but the shot-stopper emphasized there was the need to remain focused until the end of the season.
“We have to stay focused till the end of the season because our top priority is to keep the NPFL status intact.
The Tin City outfit joined the NPFL this season and Danladi said that remaining in the elite side was a top priority.
“When I joined Plateau United alongside a couple of other quality additions, the performances of the team improved.
“We all worked as a team and that determination has helped the team a great deal.”
Danladi has played in 24 matches and he has kept 13 clean sheets this season.
