Warri Wolves extended their unbeaten streak to five games following a 2-1 home win against Plateau United  in a Nigeria Professional Football League matchday 23 fixture on Monday, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.

The encounter earlier scheduled to take place on Sunday at the Warri City Stadium  was postponed by 24 hours after heavy downpour rendered the pitch unplayable.

The hosts took the lead in the 12th minute through Uche Cyprian who slotted home a beautiful freekick.

The Seasiders failed to double their advantage despite dominating possession and creating a number of goal scoring opportunities.

They were made to pay for their prolifigacy in front of goal  when Joshua Obaje fired home the equalising goal 20 minutes from time.
Wolves however got the winner three minutes from time after Achibi Ewenike converted from the spot.

The home side now occupy  the 12th position in  the table, while Plateau United remain in 18th position.
