Coach John Obuh on Wednesday failed to halt FC Ifeanyiubah losing treak as the club lost 0-1 to Heartland Football Club at the Liberation Stadium, Port Harcourt in a Glo Premier League Week 15 fixture.

Only on Monday, the club proprietor, Dr. Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, sacked the Technical Adviser, Mitko Dobrev, for losing  0-1 to Wikki Tourists of Bauchi at home.

Obuh, who replaced the sacked coach was expected to perform “miracles” away.

However, at Ilorin, Kwara United’s 2-3 loss to Enyimba may have ended Coach Tunde Abdulrahman reign there. The coach, who was given three-match Ultimatum has lost the two matches. so far played.

Meanwhile, Enugu Rangers beat visisting Kano Pillars 2-1 for a third straight win in the league.

The impressive run has brightened Imama Amapakabo’s chances of clinching Rangers top job of Technical Adviser as management says his performance would be reviewed at the end of the first round.

Sadly, Pillars coach, Okey Emordi may will be facing the wrath of the management and fans of the club for the recent poor performance that has put the club far away from the title race.

The former Rangers coach narrowly escaped being lynched by the vociferous Pillars fans after a 2-2 home draw last Sunday.
