In what was dubbed a battle of former champions, Plateau United put up a big fight and were unlucky not to get on the score sheet early from Sunday Anthony’s 25th-minute effort.
In the end, it was Omoyele who showed his predatory skills with a double strike in the first half to help the Aba Millionaire side with a comfortable win.
The former Osun United bundled in the opener in the 27th minute before doubling the advantage with a sumptuous strike moments after,
Omoyele’s striker caught Plateau United goalkeeper Chinedu Anozie napping.
A tactical second half from the Abdul Maikaba tutored side, saw them gain some sort of foothold in the game, and were rewarded with a consolatory goal from Moses Effiong, who gets his head on the free-kick of Ndala and directs it past John Noble in the 76th minute.
Enyimba remain top with Saturday’s win
