Lagos - Kano Pillars coach Okey Emordi insists that the 3-0 bashing his side were dealt by Sunshine Stars on Sunday will not derail their title ambitions.
A brace from Musa Newman and a late cracker from Prince Agrrey gave the Akure Gunners a comprehensive win over Kano Pillars. But Emordi is undeterred by the setback which, as he believes the Club's target pf winning the league for a third consecutive year is still on course.
"This is football. I didn't expect this type of result but there is nothing we can do about that now," Emordi said after the game.
