The Lagos-based side, MFM FC, picked up a point in front of their fans, having been outplayed by their visitors for much of the encounter.
Tony Bolus' men barely threatened and had their centre-back, Joshua Akpudje, and goalkeeper, Folarin Abayomi, to thank for finishing the game without conceding.
Following the game, the Olukoya Boys coach expressed his sadness about the result while commending his boys for sticking to plan.
"We are not really happy about the result, it's a very big setback for us so we have to try and recover," the former Giwa FC gaffer said.
Asked what he thought of Plateau's gameplay, with the away side having bossed possession for much of the game, he said:
"You don't expect them not to play, every team have their own moment, they had theirs and we had our own moments too. We had clear chances that we could have buried but the goal didn't come and the boys didn't play badly. We believe that we would get it right somewhere else.”
Bolus revealed that he had to make some tactical tweaks on his team in order to contain the threats of Makkaba's men and he was pleased that it worked out.
"We tried some tactical changes which almost paid off. We know they are a team that like to play in the middle so we tried to put some men that would man-Mark them, then in the second half we brought in a playmaker (Elijah) that would be able to distribute the ball,” he stated.
MFM's next game is an away trip to Kwara United where they would hope to get a good result to strengthen their push for a continental ticket for next season.
