Although the Eagles put up a spirited fight, the Atlas Lions made judicious use of their numerical advantage after Plateau United’s Moses Eneji was sent off early in the second half.

“It is quite unfortunate that we lost the final match. We did our but it was not good enough,” Okpotu said.

“However, we cannot continue to cry over what has come and gone. We have to move on.

“The next thing is for us to return to our clubs and work on the mistakes that cost us the victory.
