Though they are fondly referred to as Prayer Warriors, MFM FC on Sunday succumbed to the 'superior' fire power of El-Kanemi Warriors in their Match Day 3 game of the Nigeria Professional Football League.

Unlike in their last visit in which they were condemned to a 2-1 defeat it was worse on Sunday for Coach Fidelis Ilechukwu side as they were thumped 3-1 by El-Kanemi Warriors this time.

After initially proving a hard nut to crack, Bello Kofarmata shot El-Kanemi in front in the 59th minute and barely four minutes later, Ocheme Edoh compounded MFM's woes with a second goal.

Sunday’s defeat is the second successive defeat for the CAF Champions League campaigners having also lost in Umuahia to Abia Warriors in the opening weekend on the 2018 NPFL season.
