Katsina United will hope to take the game to hosts Plateau United in Jos when both teams clash in continuation of the NPFL on Wednesday.
Plateau United will be looking forward to maintain their good run of form at home, which is one of the reasons they are second on the table even with two outstanding games.
Coach Boboye boys defeated Wikki Tourists in their last home match 1-0 and the team will be banking on their good home record to do the damage again when they welcome ‘The Chanji Boys’.
Plateau United have dropped just a point at home thus far this season, that was in their match against Lobi Stars, while picking 26 out of possible 27 points at home.
Hence, Katsina United have a huge mountain to climb as they have not been good travellers – they have managed to pick just two points on the road out of possible 24.
