Williams: ‘Abia Warriors deserved victory’

Defender Ubong Williams felt Abia Warriors deserved a�?all three pointsa�? from their 1-1 draw with Lobi Stars.

Umar Zango’s 45-metre strike cancelled out Ndifreke Effiong’s opener at the Umuahia Township Stadium on Wednesday.

a�?Considering the performance and the numerous scoring opportunities, we certainly deserved more,a�? Williams told Futbalgalore.com.

a�?Bizarrely, we found ourselves conceding a goal. It is to be considered a positive result I suppose, but we wanted and deserved all three points.

a�?Lobi Stars were very aggressive and took spaces away, but with patience we found ways through from the flanks and with long-range shots.

a�?We did everything possible to break through their defence, which was locked down in front of the goal. It wasn’t funny that we only managed a draw.a�?

Abia Warriors have 20 points from 15 rounds a�� seven lesser than Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) leaders Lobi Stars.

a�?Obviously we have a good position in the table, but considering the way wea��ve played this season and the chances wea��ve created, I have to say we deserved to be even higher.

a�?The new players have settled in well, but I had no doubts on the old guard. Seeing them train during the week, I know they can grow and improve further.

a�?In recent years Abia Warriors have showed a great ability to plan ahead and became a stable club in the NPFL.a�?
