Plateau United recovered to equalise when Reuben Bala converted a penalty in the 42nd minutes as they went into the break 1-1.

Lobi Stars forward Ogunye Austin was shown  second yellow card in the 77th minute which led to his dismissal and his team were reduced to 10 men for the remainder of the game.

Lobi Stars tried to hold on for a draw but Akila Jesse was fouled in the penalty box and the referee pointed to the spot.

Bala again stepped up to convert his second penalty of the game to put Lobi ahead in the 85th minute as they held on for the rest of the game to claim three points.
