Abia Warriors extended their unbeaten run in the 2020-2021 Nigeria professional football league to five matches after a 1 – 0 win over Wikki Tourists of Bauchi on Saturday.
Abia Warriors hosted the Usman Abdallah led side at the Okigwe township Stadium on Saturday for their NPFL matchday 13 clash.
The first real chance of the game fell to the visitors in the 22nd minute, Mustapha Abdullahi took a corner from the right hand and Nazifi Yahaya’s acrobatic effort was stopped by the crossbar after beating Ojo Olorunleke in goal for Abia Warriors.
Wikki Tourists wasted another golden opportunity in the 38th, this time, Idris Mohammed Guda played a nice pass to Manu Garba who was through on goal.
Manu aimed for the bottom left corner and the ball went wide off target with just Olorunleke Ojo to beat.
Wikki was made to pay for all the misses, as the referee awarded a penalty to the home side on the stroke of halftime.
Salisu Adamu was found guilty of tripping Paul Samson in the box and Fatai Abdullahi stepped forward to convert the spot-kick.
The strike happened to be the only goal of the game as the second-half ended in a drought.
