Nasarawa United plans Pillars upset

21 April 2015, 10:24

Lafia - Nasarawa United coach, Mohammed Baba Ganaru has revealed that his wards would give Kano Pillars their first defeat this season in the Nigeria's top flight football, Supersport reports.

United will this Wednesday welcome the Sai Masugida as the two foes will go head-to-head in their Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) week 5 encounter in Lafia.

Ganaru, whose wards were forced to a goalless draw last Sunday by visiting 3SC said Kano Pillars would suffer the consequence of the points they dropped to the Ibadan-based club.

“We tormented 3SC from the start to the end, but we could not score, and I was so sad after the game because 3SC does not deserve to leave Lafia with a point.

“3SC were so much lucky, but we have put that behind us now as we have another tough duel this Wednesday with Kano Pillars.

“It's just a pity that Kano Pillars would have to face the consequence of the point we dropped against 3SC because we must beat them on Wednesday,” Ganaru said to supersport.com

Ganuru joined Nasarawa United from Kano Pillars last term after guiding the Sai Masugida to win the NPFL title twice.
