Fabiyi: Win was for the fans


Goalkeeper Olaniyi Fabiyi believes Abia Warriors’ maiden Nigerian Premier League victory will help attract more fans, which in turn will boost morale.

The Umuahia-based club earned promotion to the top-flight as 1st-Division B winners last year and got their campaign off to the perfect start with a 2-0 win over Kaduna United on Saturday.

Fabiyi dedicated the victory to the club’s fans and urged them to come in their numbers to show their support throughout the 2014 season.

“It was the first-ever match for Abia Warriors in the Glo Premier League and we wanted to win for the fans,” he told SuperSport.

“We played well and deserved to win.

“Victory on match day will lure more fans to our home matches which is necessary to boost confidence.”
