Oshoke Matthew cancelled out the lone goal earlier scored by the host. Akwa Starlet went on rampage immediately with series of counter attack but many thanks to Nnewi defence for towering displays that kept their host at bay.

The Nnewi outfit have so far picked two points on the road under their gaffer, who resumed at the end of week four encounter.

” I am delighted with the way we displayed our tactical abilities on Wednesday, though, we were jaded a little bit in the early minutes of the encounter. We settled in later and outplayed our host in all departments.

” We need to continue like this, in order to avoid drop this season. We drew our home game on weekend and we just must bounce back with positive result.” Coach Agbana Ademola told

Reacting to the rumors widely spread that the club has shown him the way out, Agbana spoke further,

” Nobody sacked me, I was not informed about such decision. Nnewi people like me and my inputs. I am still the chief coach of Nnewi United. I took this team out of relegation and we will keep fighting to return to where we belong.” He concluded.

Nnewi United currently pinned on 14th position on the log, a point above safety and shall host AS Racing FC of Lagos in one of the match day 11 encounter.
