Action continues today in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) as Akwa United at the Nest of Champions will take on Abia Warriors in a matchday 10 fixture.
Akwa United look to have switched form with Abia Warriors as they seem to have rediscovered the kind of form their coach enjoyed in his last job which helped Wikki Tourists to a continental finish last season while Abia Warriors have failed to replicate their early season form which have seen coach Okey Emordi resign from the Umuahia based side.
Despite Akwa United’s faltering start to this season, they are yet to lose at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium, Uyo, but coach Abdullahi Biffo, the substantive coach of Abia Warriors for the second time in two season will look to start his new position on a positive note.
Visiting Abia Warriors are in the top half of the table thanks to an early unbeaten run but have not picked a point in their last two games. Akwa United have risen to the 14th place thanks to their newly found form. The promise keepers have won all their last three games in Uyo.
A win for the home side will see them leapfrog their visitors as they have only one point between them. A loss for Abia Warriors will definitely compound their woes and put the Ochendo boys on more pressure.
