NPFL'23 Match Report: Kumanga Suur's lone strike ends Abia Warriors fine run

Published on: 22 January 2023

Lobi Stars got a sweet win over Abia Warriors on match day 3, ending the Umuahia based team's fine run to the start of the Nigeria Premier Football League, NPFL season.

It was Kumara Suur’s strike five minutes before the hour mark that condemned Abia Warriors to their first defeat of the season as Lobi Stars made it back to back win.

In a cagey encounter which pitched the Warriors with two wins against the Makurdi side with a loss and win, there was nothing choose in the first half as it ended goalless.

Though, it should have been a different score line after Umar Abba in a one-on-one situation couldn't beat goalkeeper, Femi Thomas who saved his effort in the 38th minute.

However, in the second phase of the game, Joseph Atule passes the ball nicely to Suur to score his first league goal of the season and Lobi's winner.

With the result, Lobi Stars have now won two consecutive games . They play host to newly promoted side, Bayelsa United in their next game.
