After Enyimba Defeated Abia Warriors, See How The Nigeria Football Professional League Table Looks

The Nigeria Football professional league is back again after a long lay off due to the coronavirus restrictions that lasted for some couple of months. The Aba elephants Enyimba began their league campaign on a brighter note as they defeated Abia Warriors with a slim 1 - 0 margin.

Recall  Fatai Osho’s boys Enyimba, were decimated 0-3 in Omdurman by Al Merreikh in the CAF Champions League on the weekend. Supporters of Enyimba never saw that coming even though they knew playing in Omdurman was never a fertile ground for Nigeria club sides in CAF Champions League games.

Regardless of that humiliating defeats, Enyimba deemed it necessary to put the loss behind them and bounced back to winning ways against a dogged Abia Warriors side. The derby game was never a peaceful game having considered what happened in their last Premier League clash in Umuahia.

Nevertheless, the encounter lived up to expectation this time as the officiating was without biases and in and out of the pitch recorded no violence. The elephant took control of the game in the first five minutes, missing loads of chances that could have giving them the lead when Orok failed to pounce on a loose ball in the 4th minutes. Both teams sized each other and missed scoring opportunities in the first half.

The second half of the game was More purposeful as Enyimba broke the Dread lock in the 53rd minutes when samad kadiri converted from the spot to make it a scoring debut.Abia Warriors press's harder for an equalizer but Enyimba defense look rock solid to hold on to their lead. It ended 1 - 0 in favor of the elephants.A disappointing result, bad start and bad day for Abia warriors, but a good start for the former African champions.
