Kano Pillars Football Club on Saturday defeated visiting Katsina United 1-0 in match day two of the Nigeria Premier League (NPL).

Pillars shrugged off their last week’s away loss to Sunshine of Akure to occupy the driver’s seat in the 27th minute of the game, when Mustafa Ibrahim found the opponent’s net in front of their home crowd, at the Sani Abacha stadium.

Though the visiting Katsina side upped their game and tried to pull an equaliser, their forays were foiled by the back line of the home side.

Speaking during a post-match interview, Coach Absu Maikaba, commended his players, whom he said played to instruction.

Maikaba described the outcome of the match as rewarding after losing their away game 1-0.

He also commended his team for their fighting spirit.
