Enugu Rangers began the defence of their Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) title on a worst possible note when they lost to visiting Abia Warriors 2-1 at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium.

Rangers, who took the league by storm last season, gave their fans an impression of a beautiful day when new boy, Fortune Omoniwari, opened scores in the 10th minute off a tantalising cross by left-back Chidiebere Okoli. But Abia Warriors would have none of that, as they equalised just 12 minutes later through Emeka Isaac’s deflected shot.

The Okey Emordi tutored ‘Ochendo Boys’ took the lead with 18 minutes left in the game when Godwin Zaki converted a penalty 18 minutes from time for the Umuahia-based club’s first win in Enugu.
