Kano Pillars defender speaks ahead of visit to Akure

19 June 2015, 18:29

Kano - It's going to be a battle between the first and third teams on the league table when Sunshine Stars host Kano Pillars in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) on Sunday June 21 in a week 13 tie.

Kano Pillars FC who have won the League trophy twice in a row and are currently third on the League log will be aiming to overrun table toppers, Sunshine Stars FC.

Former El-Kanemi Warriors defender, Reuben Ogbonnaya who joined Kano Pillars this season in a chat to News24 on Friday maintained a high confidence that Pillars will stun Akure fans this weekend, insisting that their lowest performance on the day should earn them a point while their best is enough to earn a win.

Reuben Ogbonnaya who picked an injury against Warri Wolves in Warri said: "Sure there is hope because its football, anything can happen. They (Sunshine Stars) narrowly won against Warri Wolves in week 12," Ogbonnaya told News24.

“I believe we can get at least one out of three points if we play badly. But if we play well and use our chances I am sure three points will be ours." Ogbonnaya said confidently.
