Champions Enyimba continued their dismal form and their League title defence suffered yet another hit following a 2-0 defeat against FC Ifeanyi Ubah in the NPFL on Sunday.
The defeat in Nnewi means Enyimba are winless in the last four league games.
Following their home loss to Heartland last week, the Fatai Osho tutored side were hoping to bounce back against the Anambra Warriors after last week’s defeat to Heartland in another local derby.
However, the Elephants fell short again, despite dominating for the most part of the game, it was the host who would make their chances count.
Uche Sebastine put FC Ifeanyi Ubah in front in the 37th minute, before Ikenna Cooper added the second in the 66th minutes to seal the three points.
Enyimba however tried to respond, but could only manage one effort on target from 12 attempts on the evening.
The defeat means Enyimba hover just above the relegation zone as their fortune failed to improved under their caretaker manager.
