There was drama in the ancient city of Ibadan during the match day 12 encounter of the Nigeria Professional Football League.
The first half ended a barren draw after both teams had attempted at scoring.
The second half was to be dramatic. The visitors from Jos proved their top position on the league table was no fluke, and they took the lead to the disappointment of the home fans.
Few minutes later striker Bode Daniel was brought down in the box of Plateau United and the referee point to penalty spot. That call resulted to a protest by the visitors.
However, Adebayo scored from the spot to restore parity for 3SC.
Plateau United coach Kennedy Boboye engaged in war of words with 3SC GM which has resulted in hiccup after he saw the administrator approaching his team’s bench. As a result, the game was delayed for 10 minutes.
But after resumption, the result remains unchanged as the tie ended 1-1.
