"All hands are on deck and the Proprietor of the team, Ambassador Chris Giwa has given the boys extra motivation to soar," David King, media officer of Giwa, told news24.

"I believe with the fine form the boys are enjoying coupled with the energy the owner of the Club has invested in the welfare of the playing and coaching Staff, in addition to the hard work exhibited so far by the coaches and other backroom staff, the sky is our limit."

The Plateau Elephants are enjoying a fine run of form in only their second season in Nigeria's top flight.
