Abia Warriors welcome an in-form Doma United to the Umuahia Township Stadium in the city of Umuahia, Abia State, in a Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) fixture.

Playoffs hopefuls Doma United will want to extend their three-game unbeaten run in the league to strengthen their position in the top three. Meanwhile, Abia Warriors will look to continue their three games winning streak at home. The Umuahia-based club know that a place in the top three is out of their reach, considering two teams above them have a game in hand. Winning their last home game will be their final goal, as the regular season ends on Sunday.

Where Do Both Teams Sit in the NPFL Group B Table?

Abia Warriors are 5th in the Group B table, obtaining 24 points from 17 matches. On the other hand, Doma United have accumulated 26 points from 17 NPFL fixtures and sits 3rd in the Group B table with a game in hand.

Abia Warriors vs Doma United NPFL Preview

Abia Warriors

Abia Warriors have won three straight NPFL games at the Umuahia Township Stadium ahead of their bout with Doma United. The Umuahia Warriors have had trouble on the road in the league this season, but at home, they're among the strongest outfits in the division. They've played eight home games, winning five, drawing two and losing one. However, they come into the fixture in mixed form, winning just three games in seven. Interestingly, all four losses have been away from home.

Doma United

Newly promoted Doma United has proved all bookmakers wrong by contesting for the available spots in group B. They'd be in an excellent position to make the playoffs if they get points from their remaining games. Akinade Onigbinde's charges are unbeaten in their last three games and have lost only once in their previous seven encounters, winning four and drawing two. This form has pushed them up to 3rd on the NPFL table.
