31 January 2014, 16:23Israel Ojoko

Umuahia - Abia Warriors FC continued their preparations for the forthcoming Glo Premier League Campaign with a resounding 2-0 victory over Rangers International in an inter-club friendly to avenge the 1-0 loss they suffered in their first game in Enugu.

The encounter, which took place at the renovated Umuahia Township Stadium saw captain Chima Uluocha give the home side the lead from the penalty spot with the game barely 10 minutes old while new boy, Kwassi Judicael doubled the advantage shortly after with a powerful missile from outside the 16-metre box.

The Ochendo Babes, whose attack was marshaled by Peter Onyekachi prodded the defense of the Flying Antelope several times but failed to increase the tally until the referee blasted the final whistle.

Speaking to sports writers after the game, a member of the Rangers International Technical crew, Kingsley Obiekwu said he was satisfied with the way his boys reacted particularly after conceding the two early goals and assured of a better performance in future matches.

On his part, Technical Adviser of Abia Warriors, Emeka Ezeugo described the team as "a work in progress" insisting that although they won the match, some more work will still be needed to enable the team rub shoulders with the big boys in the Premier League.
