Plateau United assistant coach Audu Isah says careless mistakes cost his side at Mountain of Fire Miracles Ministries (MFM) FC.

The Jos Elephants were beaten 1-2 by the Olukoya Boys in Sunday’s top-flight matchday 14 clash at the Agege Township Stadium in Lagos.

Isah said his side came to Lagos with the sole mission to snatch the three points at the expense MFM FC.

“It was disappointing to lose, our mission was to claim the points but we ended up as the losers.

“We almost ran away with a point before the careless mistake that led to a penalty being awarded to MFM FC.

“That’s part of football, we have lost the game but we will go back home to work on the mistakes with the hope of making amends.

“We will work very hard to reclaim the points against Abubakar Bukola Saraki (ABS) FC in Jos.

“Although we still lead the pack at the top-flight summit, we aren't too comfortable as the gap is almost closed so we must win matches to widen the gap.

“We are determined to keep the leadership position irrespective of the stiff challenges ahed,” said Isah to supersport.com.

The Tin City side stay at the summit despite loss to the Lagos outfit on 25 points one above closest challengers, MFM FC.
