More pressure mounts on Abia Warriors manager, Imama Amapakabo after his side were held again to a goalless draw in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) on Sunday.

The matchday seven encounter saw the Warriors pick only a point on the road as Lobi Stars frustrated all their efforts to score a winner in Makurdi.

Abia Warriors are yet to secure a win in the league this season, having lost four times and drawn thrice.

Amapakabo had been handed a three-match ultimatum by the club’s management after week four, but it is yet to be known the action they would take after a third consecutive draw.

In Aba, Enyimba international recorded a slim 1-0 win against Kastina United, with Tosin Omoyele netting the decisive goal just before the break.
