Abia Warriors head coach, Okey Emordi was shocked after his side lost the top-flight clash against visiting side, El Kanemi Warriors.
The Umuahia Warriors were piped 0-1 by the Maiduguri Warriors in Sunday’s Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) matchday 9 clash at the Umuahia Township Stadium.
A goal by attacking winger, Hussaini Bata in the 8th minute proved adequate to hand the Maiduguri Warriors their first away win of the on-going top-flight.
Emordi said he did not bargain for what befell his side in the encounter.
“It was a very unfortunate result losing on home ground to El Kanemi Warriors.
“We never bargained for the poor result as this is a game we could have won comfortably.
“I think everybody puts his legs wrongly in the entire duration of the match, it’s truly a bad day for us.
“Very unfortunate the encounter ended poorly for us after a good match practice.
“Well, it has come to pass we cannot do anything on the outcome of the match, we have to put it behind us to forge ahead on reclaiming the points in other matches.
“Definitely, today (Sunday) is a bad day that we got everything wrong,” said the former Enyimba and Enugu Rangers coach to supersport.com.
The loss to El Kanemi Warriors leaves Abia Warriors total earning at 11 points from possible 27 in the nine-week old top-flight.
