Enyimba beat Abia Warriors 1-0 in fierce clash

Enyimba International completed double over Abia Warriors with a 1-0 victory in the second fixture of the season played at the Okigwe township Stadium in Imo on Thursday.

Striker Victor Mbaoma scored the winning goal inside the opening 7th minutes encounter, before the game was abandoned due to bad weather.

The game was concluded on Thursday morning and Enyimba fought hard to keep the home team away from their goal for much part of the game.

Abia Warriors almost equalised with the last kick of the game when defender Adekunle Adeleke beat John Noble from inside the box , but his effort was cleared by Timothy Danladi on the line.

The victory moved the People’s Elephants to fifth position on the log with 48 points.
