NPFL: Kano Pillars chairman optimistic about Rangers win



The Nigeria News Agency (NAN) reports that the two teams will face off in a Matchday 14 match of the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) at Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Kaduna.

Kaduna has been the club’s adopted home since the Sani Abacha Stadium became a COVID-19 temporary isolation center.

“As an experienced team, Kano Pillars will make sure the Rangers are defeated to maintain our hopes of winning the league.

“The Rangers are a good team with history, and as such we won’t take any chances and try as much as possible to win the game and get back to first place.

“We share third place with them with 23 points in 13 games played so far, and I’m sure we will overcome them,” said Shuaibu.

He also said playing away has not affected the team in any way as the players are all professionals who can adapt to any situation.

“It’s a source of concern to know that our sports fans are not with us when we play because we play away from home.

“However, we are used to our foster home in Kaduna because we are professionals and I am an optimistic person,” added the club president.

He stressed that the signing of seven new players and the synergy between players and coaches had a big impact on their performance this season.

Shuaibu praised the Kano State government for the motivation and well-being of the players and management so far.

The Kano mainstays, who occupy the third position, have 23 points in 13 matches played so far.

They have won seven games, drawn two and lost four games. (NOPE)
