Abia Warriors captain Austin Obaroakpo has been ruled out of his side’s Nigeria Professional Football League matchday 33 clash against MFM FC at the Agege Stadium on Sunday due to illness, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
The centre-back has not trained with his teammates since returning from Spain where he was part of the NPFL All- Stars squad that featured in the La Liga tour.
His unavailability is a big blow for the Umuahia- based side who are in a deep relegation fight.
The Abdullahi Biffo-led side sit in 16th position in the table and need to avoid defeat in the game to enhance their chances of escaping the drop.
Their hosts also have relegation worries as they are two places behind them in the table.
