An Uche Ihuarulam’s strike was good enough to end Warri Wolves’ 294-day wait for a win in the Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL, as the Seasiders put a very resolute
Adamawa United to the edge of the sword on Matchday 2 of the 2020/2021 NPFL.
The last time the Oil City club won a game in the NPFL was on March 15, 2020, after they beat MFM FC 2 – 0 on Matchday 24 of the 2019/2020 NPFL Season.
And again against MFM FC on Matchday 1 of the current campaign, the Wolves had suffered a 2 – 1 defeat away from home.
But on Sunday, January 3, 2021, the Seasiders showed signs that they wanted the game more, as they dominated the first half but lacked the cutting edge to score against Adamawa United, who had more men behind the ball in their own half.
In the 83 minute, Warri Wolves had their special moment of magic, after Uche Ihuarulam had traveled with the ball from the midfield and drilled a powerful shot pass Victor Philimon in goal for Adamawa United.
Warri Wolves deservedly won the tie at the end of 90 minutes by a lone goal.
The Seasiders will next play Lobi Stars of Makurdi on Matchday 3 of the NPFL at the Aper Aku Stadium on Sunday, January 10, 2020.
