Kano Pillars seek first away point in Port Harcourt


The Sai Masu forward has stated that the knowledge acquired from their coaches during the break should help secure points in Port Harcourt.

Kano Pillars’ Adamu Mohammed has revealed that Sai Masu Gida are refreshed and poised to pick their first away points of the season against Rivers United in a rescheduled NPFL Match Day 7 tie in Port Harcourt on Wednesday having addressed their inability to achieve success in their away matches this season during the break.

Pillars last played a league game on February 5 in their last gasp 1-0 home win over ABS in Kano and they Mohammed has disclosed that the players and coaches have used the break to examine the problem in the team and what must be done to achieve positive away results haing lost all their three away matches thus far.

He said they engaged in several drills and other tactical nuances and that they are going to Port Harcourt to show samples of what they have been taught and that they are hoping to end their inability to earn away points when they face the Pride of Rivers on Wednesday at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium.

“The break really helped us to ponder about many things. We examined what we must do to start getting good results away from home. The few days were judiciously spent by our coaches teaching us basic tenets of what we must do to score more goals and hold on to our advantage at home and away,” Mohammed noted to Goal.

“We are confident that we are going to utilize what we had been taught when we face Rivers United before their fans on Wednesday. We know it won’t be easy but we know what we are capable of.”

Pillars who are presently 13th on the log with nine points from six games were on 17 days break  because their Match Days 7 to 9 were against CAF Inter Club campaigners of Rivers United (away), Wikki Tourists (home) and Enugu Rangers (away)  and had to wait till another suitable dates are found.
