15 July 2015, 11:33

Lagos - The Glo Premier League will resume with action from week 18 with two star games in Aba and Kano, Enyimba will host table toppers, Sunshine Stars while inform Wikki Tourist who have won twice on the road this term and are second on the log will take on Kano Pillars who are yet to lose at home for twelve years.

The captain of Wikki Tourist, Mustapha Ibrahim in a chat with News24 spoke confidently of what the Elephant of Bauchi wants to achieve in Kano.

It's exactly twelve years since Kano Pillars lost at home, Masu Gida lost 2-1 at home to Lagos based Julius Berger FC on June 21, 2003 and since then Kano Pillars who have won the league trophy twice in a row haven't lost at home, but the positive vibe in Wikki Tourist camp who play Kano Pillars in Kano today may see that record fall.

"Our coach, Abdul Maikaba has been a great mentor to us all and that has been another reason why the team is so united. We believe be it home or away, we can secure victory and the game in Kano isn't an exception, “Ibrahim Mustapha stated.
