Match Review: Plateau Utd FC earns three match unbeaten run against Abia Warriors FC

Posted : 13 November 2023
Abia Warriors have secured maximum points in four home games in the Nigeria Premier Football League. However, the narrow margins of these victories draw parallels with the Peace Boys, whose three home wins have faced criticism from a fan base desiring more goals. Additionally, facing a pragmatic side away from home poses a challenging prospect for both teams.
A draw against Akwa United on the road provided a glimmer of hope, yet the lack of goals remains a growing concern for key stakeholders. In the 2023/2024 Nigeria Premier Football League's Match Day 8, Olawale Doyeni initiated a play just four minutes in, forcing a clearance by Abia Warriors' Nwoburuoke Collins.
Set piece specialist Daniel Itodo orchestrated a throw-in, enabling defender Chris Nwaeze to head in the opener after five minutes, intensifying an already charged atmosphere. Continuing their momentum, the Peace Boys struck again as Nwaeze's attempt led to Barnabas Daniel calmly slotting in the second goal.
Minutes later, a free kick by Sam Pam Junior inadvertently forced Abia Warriors' captain, Njoku Augustine, to head into his net, hinting at a potential landslide. Abia Warriors responded when Pascal Nwabueze orchestrated a play that led to Meme Okike's goal after 27 minutes.
The second half remained relatively subdued until a flurry of missed opportunities from the Peace Boys, coupled with remarkable goalkeeping by Mmeche Johnson, prevented the anticipated goal fest. Across eight stadia on November 12, eight Nigeria Premier Football League Match Day 8 games occurred, with Gombe United suffering a 4-0 defeat to Remo Stars in Ikenne, significantly contributing to the 17 goals scored across the centers.
Looking forward, the Peace Boys aim to extend their unbeaten streak to four games with a trip to the Pantami Stadium in Gombe against Doma United, presenting yet another challenge, particularly in their pursuit of an away victory.
