JUTH Eyes Return To Premier League

National Division I League side, Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) Football Club, is on course to make an immediate to the top-flight of the Nigerian league after starting life in the lower league with a 100 per cent record.
JUTH FC won its fourth game on the bounce when it defeated Adamawa United on the road by 2 – 1.
The former Premier League side had conceded on 38 minutes when Adamawa United took the lead through Mbai Aminu.
However, it took the visitor, JUTH FC, 45 minutes to rally back into the match when substitute Babawo Mohammed chipped Adamawa United’s goalkeeper for the equalizer.
Within two minutes, JUTH FC turned the tie against its host through Sunday Omolade’s volley to claim all three points and remain on top of the National Division IA League with 12 points.
Spokesman of the club, Olusola Alao, told the club is targeting an unbeaten run in the league.
“We want to set the record of an unbeaten run in the Division I League as we plan to return to the Premier League next season in style,” he told
JUTH FC would play host to another side that was relegated in last season’s campaign of the Premier League, FC Abuja, in Jos on Saturday.
Already, JUTH FC has seen off the challenge of Jigawa Stars (1-0), Nasarawa United (2-1) and Spotlight (2-1) before adding Adamawa United to that list.
