Abia Warriors head coach Emmanuel Deutsch was pleased to see his charges show character during their victory over Wikki Tourists.

Obi Samson’s second-half brace inspired Abia to a 2-0 win over Wikki in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) match on Sunday.

Deutsch, who speaking to the league’s official website, said they got the result the fans had been expecting.

“I feel good because at the end of the game, football is all about results and we got it. As you can see the fans are happy,” Deutsch said.

“The boys showed character because if you noticed the style of play the other coach adopted.

“You will agree with me that the game was tough and kudos must go to my boys for holding their ground.”

Abia, who are placed sixth on the league standings, will face Akwa United on the 25th of March 2018.
