Warri Wolves grabs nervy win

16 June 2015, 12:14

Warri - A penalty strike from Gbolahan Salami proved to be enough for Warri Wolves, over Kano Pillars in a Glo Premier League game played at the Warri City Stadium in Warri on Monday.

Following the victory, the Seasiders improved their points haul to 16 from a possible 24, and they zoomed to 9th on the league table.

It was a near perfect game for Wolves coach Paul Aigbogun, whose side is seeking to refresh their title ambition after the recent continental ouster.

Super Eagles striker, Salami kept his cool to net a first half spot-kick after he was brought down in the box.

The game started at a cracking pace and Wolves took the game to their opponents and went close in a couple of occasions.

And they broke the resistance of the reigning Nigeria Professional Football League champions with the goal by Salami.

Pillars managed to push upfront after conceding the goal but could hardly make the most of the few chances it had.

Despite Pillars having tried hard to press for an equalizer whenever they were in possession, lack of better coordination especially in the final third was a let-down for the Kano based outfit.
