NPFL: Abia Warriors Outscore El-Kanemi In Umuahia

By Adeboye Amosu:

Abia Warriors forward Samson Obi scored his eighth goal of the season as his side beat El-Kanemi Warriors 1-0 in a Nigeria Professional Football League matchday 22 encounter at the Umuahia Township Stadium on Monday, reports

Obi netted the winning goal five minutes after the break following an inch perfect cross from Chinedu Ozor.

He is now joint-third top scorer in the NPFL this season along with teammate Ndifreke Effiong.

Only Kano Pillars forward, Junior Lokosa (18), and Kwara United’s Stephen Alfred have scored more goals than Obi.

The Umuahia club moved from ninth to sixth position in the table following the win.

El-Kanemi Warriors who are batting to avoid the drop remain in the 15th position.
