NPFL: Abia Warriors seek redemption in Oriental derby against Heartland


Heartland FC and Abia Warriors will trade tackles for the three points at stake in the first Oriental derby of the season in one of the Nigeria Premier Football League Matchday Five games slated for Umuahia this weekend.

Despite a not too impressive start to the season, the Naze Millionaires have only lost once out of four games but their Achilles heel is their inability to secure at least a win from two home games played thus far and this has put the team in precarious situation.

It is still not a hopeless situation judging by Heartland FC’s performance in their last away visit to Akure against Sunshine Stars. As they face Abia Warriors whom they have beaten twice in the league in the past five games since year 2020 they are confident that the elusive first win of the season could be in the offing this term.

The then Fidelis Ilechukwu led side ended Abia Warriors’ unbeaten streak over Heartland FC
