“But we are Kano Pillars , we are always going to into every game with the feelings that we can win.”
“We are one of the best teams in the history of the league and that also probably means that we equally strong as any team currently” He told brila.net.
Despite an uneven start that has included Pillars losing seven of their fifteen games, the Tamara believes they can still close the gap on Rivers United and possibly picked continental tickets.

“We have just got to keep on picking up points, get further away from our poor start and improve ourselves.
“We need to improve in all the aspects of the game. But still every game in this league is massive and if you can manage three points it’s a job well done.” He concluded.
