Futbalgalore.com.ng takes a closer look at Abia Warriors’ next five games against Warri Wolves, Kwara United, Wikki Tourists, Heartland abd Kano Pillars.
Abia Warriors are currently 17th in the Nigeria Professional Football League table, having taken 9 points from their 10 matches to date.
Fans of the club would be wise to forget about the past and look ahead to what promises to be a brighter future.
As we sit patiently, now is as good a time as any to consider Warriors’ next five matches and predict how many points they might take from each.
Abia Warriors vs Warri Wolves
Warriors host fellow strugglers Wolves who are currently 19th in the table, with nine points.
We are tipping Imama Amapakabo’s men to make it two wins in a row.
Kwara United vs Abia Warriors
Current league leaders Kwara United host Abia Warriors and the Umuahia Warriors will have to be at their very best to get anything from this match.
Abia Warriors vs Wikki Tourists
It doesn’t get any easier for Warriors as they face Wikki Tourists in week 13.
We are tipping Abia Warriors to send Tourists home empty handed.
Heartland vs Abia Warriors
Heartland score a lot of goals. The problem is they also concede plenty. Given that this is an Oriental derby Abia Warriors some fantastic options.
There are some pretty big headlines in the making if the likes of Godwin Obaje or Fatai Abdullahi net the winner but this should be a hard-fought but entertaining game.
Abia Warriors vs Kano Pillars
Pillars haven’t scored more than one goal in an away fixture this term.
Warriors will be confident of scoring at least one against them.
Despite that, this has score-draw written all over it. But Warriors will edge it.
