Reuben Bala's 49th minute strike had cancelled out Adekunle Adegboyega's first half goal which handed MFM FC the lead.
The draw in Jos guaranteed the Olukoya Boys their fifth point on the road in four away games.

"A lot of things worked for them(Plateau United) which included the pitch. Both teams had plenty of chances to score and we were quick enough to convert one of ours first.
