Head Coach of Abia Warriors, Imama Amakapabo, says he is ‘impressed’ with the performance of his team against Enyimba FC despite their 1-0 loss.
Abia Warriors locked horns with city rivals, Enyimba in the first match of the 2020/2021 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season.
A Samad Kadiri’s second half spot kick made the difference as Enyimba claimed bragging right in the Abia derby.

“We didn’t do badly, from a possible 114 points, we lost 3 so we have 111 to chase.
“I’m impressed with my team for losing 1-0 and it was a goal from the penalty spot.
“We played against a very good team and it wasn’t a bad show. It was an exciting game,” he stated.
