Abia Warriors vs. Yobe Desert Stars
The Uchendu Boys have returned to training ahead of Sunshine Stars’ clash and the gaffer has shared some positive remarks

Emmanuel Deutsch was impressed with the commitment of his Abia Warriors’ players after they had their first training session in Umuahia on Monday. 
The Uchendu Warriors went on the World Cup break on the high, securing a shock 2-2 draw against Plateau United in Jos nearly three weeks ago.

Upon their resumption on Monday, the Cameroonian gaffer, who supervised the first training at the Umuahia Township Stadium, was delighted with his players’ turnout during the session. 

“I am happy with the response of the players on the first day of training after the World Cup break,” Deutsch told media. 

“They demonstrated their willingness to continue their good run in the topflight league. We've only lost once in our last 14 matches before the world cup break.

“We are still expecting a few of the players who were yet to report for training to rejoin their colleagues soon.”

The Umuahia based topflight outfit will look to plan well ahead of their trip to Akure to honour a clash with Sunshine Stars on Wednesday, July 18, 2018.
