Kano Pillars head coach Ibrahim Musa, admits the title race could be over after leaders Akwa extended their advantage to six points over the weekend.
The Promise Keepers defeated Jigawa Golden Stars at home last Sunday and needs just four points from remaining three matches to seal their first ever league crown.
Musa who watched his side grind out a 1-0 win over Abia Warriors at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Kaduna, said the title could be heading to Uyo after what happened last Sunday.
“Sincerely speaking, it’s difficult to win the titke now after Akwa United won [against Jigawa Golden Stars]. We cannot deceive ourselves [that we still have a chance to win the league]. Let’s go and fight for the second position in order to secure continental football.”
Ibrahim Musa however ever called on his boys to finish strongly starting with the game against Kwara United on Wednesday.
Pillars will then hosts Wikki Tourists in Kaduna on Sunday, before wrapping up the campaign away.
