Abia Warriors head coach, Kennedy Boboye is understandably worried following his side’s latest defeat in the derby loss clash against neighbours, Enugu Rangers on Friday night in their NPFL Match Day 25 tie play at the Nnamdi Azikwe Stadium..
Two first half goals by the Flying Antelopes duo, Obinna Nwobodo and Chisom Egbuchulam condemned Warriors to their fourth loss on the bounce as Michael Olaha’s 90th minute goal counted for nothing.
Boboye in his post-match submission stated that a turnaround for the dwindling fortune of the Umuahia Warriors is quite keen at the moment.
“Well this is not the best of time for us going three straight matches without a win we never bargained for it.
“I thought today’s (Friday) game at Enugu Rangers would have marked a major turnaround for us sadly it was not to be.
“We fought hard for a respective result but our effort did not yield the desired result leaving us still without a win in the last three matches.
“The clash is a local derby both sides gave their very best in the duration of the match but Enugu Rangers turned out to be the winners.
“We are challenged with these defeats to fight hard to launch ourselves back to winning way in the remaining matches on the calendar.
“This game is lost and won so we have to head home to commence preparation for the next game on home soil against Warri Wolves, we must work hard to get it right else it will really be unsavoury,” said the former Sunshine Stars coach to supersport.com.
The latest defeat for Abia Warriors means they stay on 32 points 11 behind the conquerors and new league leaders, Enugu Rangers.
