This development which is a positive one for the club as that will give the technical crew many options as they come up with the line-up for the crucial encounter.

One of such players whose return was greeted with jubilation is Raphael Ayagwa as his absence was greatly felt during the return leg of the CAF Champions League tie against Etoile Du Sahel in Kano.

Although, Plateau United don't rely on a particular player to deliver the goods, his absence was obvious as the team missed his defence split passes and goals.

Another player whose return is a sign of relieve to the team is Daniel Itodo who played his first match of the season against Yobe Desert Stars of Damaturu last week.

The long throw specialist sustained an injury while on national assignment at the CHAN Championship in Morocco early this year which ruled him out of the remaining matches of the tournament and the start of the league for his club.
