Abia Warriors however restored  parity on 58 minutes with enterprising forward Chisom Chikatara slamming the ball home after Wolves goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi spilled Bolaji Sakin's goa- bound shot.

The Ladan Bosso-handled Warriors shocked their hosts when they went into the lead through Sakin in the 75th minute.
