Abia Warriors worked as hard as they could but could not find a way past a determined Kano Pillars side in Umuahia on Wednesday in the Nigeria Professional Football League.
It was a Match Day 4 fixture and with the home side having a good run in the League (two wins and one draw) the home fans were optimistic that it would be their day against a team that had never lost on that turf.
Pillars’ start to the season may not have wowed their fans but they had a good record in Umuahia and that was the setting ahead of the game.
A flurry of missed chances It was the away side that started the attacks as early as the 1st minute when Gambo Mohammed thought he had his sight on goal but the Assistant Referees flag went up for off side.
