Kano Pillars manage slim win over Ikorodu United

09 May 2016, 13:12

Kano - Kano Pillars Football Club beat visiting Ikorodu United of Lagos 2-1 on Sunday in a Match Day 15 fixture of the 2015/2016 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).

The former league champions needed to shrug off the weariness of their midweek home defeat to Enyimba and were quick to it as they went in front after 15 minutes.

Emmanuel Edmund scored after a pass from Rabiu Ali, in the match played at the Sani Abacha Stadium in Kano.

But Wednesday’s memories were soon evoked when Yemi Olasupo equalised for the visitors in the 27th minute with a brilliant effort.

Kano Pillars braced up to the challenge and task, attacking the visitors after the break, only to be foiled by the backline of Ikorodu United.

But they did not let off, with Ali who captained his side, scoring the winning goal in the 76th minute to draw wild cheers from the home fans.

Kano Pillars then only needed to ward off all attempts by Ikorodu United to equalise as they held on to win the game.

Speaking after the match, Pillars’ coach Muhammed Babaganaru said the result was good for the team after the home defeat to Enyimba.

“My team will continue to improve and work for more victories,’’ he said.
