Abia Warriors’ coach laments

September 8, 2016

Abia Warriors head coach, Abdul Usman Biffo has described as huge setback the top-flight draw against oriental neighbours, FC IfeanyiUbah.

The Umuahia Warriors were forced to a 1-1 draw by the Anambra Warriors in Wednesday’s NPFL rescheduled matchday 34 clash at the Umuahia Township Stadium.

Biffo said despite the dropped points in the oriental clash his side still have their destiny to survive the drop right on their palms.

“Of course, the draw against FC IfeanyiUbah was a huge setback on our concerted efforts to beat the drop in the on-going top-flight.

“We worked very hard to claim the whole three points but ended up sharing the spoils with the visitors.

“After we fought hard to pick a point on the road only to come back home to forfeit two points that’s not really smiling moment for us.

“However, I can beat my chest and tell whoever that cares to listen that Abia Warriors will certainly beat the drop at the end of the season.

“We have our destiny right there in our hands to make or mar the survival quest in the top-flight.

“We have three home matches to play on the calendar we cannot afford to toy with any of the matches if we must remain in the premier league.”

“We must device a measure that will see us win all the matches as well as pick some points on the road, too.

“However, I’m confident we will avoid the drop once we are able to do the needful in the remaining matches,” said the former Giwa FC and Kogi United coach to supersport.com.

Abia Warriors are 17th on the Nigerian top-flight log on 38 points 16 behind league leaders and oriental neighbours, Enugu Rangers.
