Assistant coach Patrick Ngwaogwu has confirmed that Abia Warriors are in high spirit and remain focused ahead of their Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Matchday 25 clash with Sunshine Stars of Akure.
A full house was recorded at the Umuahia Township Stadium yesterday following resumption from the World Cup break.
“The squad is in good spirit and remain focused. It’s always difficult to recover fully after a brief holiday due to the World Cup.
“The technical crew have done well to prepare the boys for the task that lies ahead. I must commend the players. They were all professionals at training,” Ngwaogwu said.
“Their fitness level is very high, their form is intact. I can confidently declare our readiness for the final but tough stretch of the top flight campaign.”
It was all smiles for the Umuahia Warriors as Chairman of the team, High Chief Emeka Inyama motivated them with payment of some of their match bonuses.
“The Chairman who is a man with few words but more action motivated the players for the task ahead by paying them some of their match bonuses. They all approached the training drills with positive mindset.
“The spirit in camp is very high, and the players are ready to take the matches as they come,” he concluded.
Abia Warriors will meet Sunshine Stars at the Ondo Sports Complex on Wednesday July 18th 2018.
