The hosts started well and forced a save off Femi Thomas in the third minute before Markson Ojobo made a goalline clearance.

In the 21st minute, Ezekiel Bassey failed to score for Enyimba after Abia goalkeeper Chinedu Anozie fumbled Andrew Abalogu’s effort.

Enyimba captain Udoji then failed to score from the penalty spot in the 29th minute after Abalogu was brought down as the goalkeeper saved.

Kingsley Sokari almost punished Abia Warriors goalkeeper Chinedu Anozie for a poor clearance, but he fired wide in the 23rd minute.
