Pillars secure 1-0 win over Bayelsa United

21 March 2013, 09:02

Kano - Kano Pillars FC on Wednesday beat Bayelsa United 1-0 in the second week of the Nigeria Premier League football competition.

The first half of the match, which was played at the Sani Abacha Stadium Kano, ended goalless.

The home side dominated the mid field in the first half but could not score until the referee’s whistle went.

However, Pillars striker, Bello Kofar-Mata, came off the bench to score the winner in the 79th minute of the entertaining encounter after a defensive blunder by the Bayelsa team.

The sweat merchant of Kano Pillars, Babaganaru Mohammed, expressed satisfaction with the performance of his boys for picking the maximum points.

``I am delighted because the lads played very well and I am proud of their fighting spirit and dedication after series of matches.''

``I want to commend Bayelsa players for giving us a tough fight. They played very well,” Mohammed explained.

Bayelsa coach, Ladan Bosso, also said that he was satisfied with the performance of his players.

``I am delighted with my young team because the boys played very well with passion to win. I am very hopeful we will win our next game.”
