Kano Pillars’ technical adviser, Babaganaru Muhammed has told SavidNews.com that his side’s Wednesday duel against Dolphins in Lokoja is very crucial as they keep their sight on retaining the Glo Nigeria Professional League title.
The people of Kano state domestic club’s favorites, plays far away from home on an banished ground behind closed door will host Dolphins in their final home game at the 25,000 capacity-seater Lokoja Confluence stadium.
“The match is very crucial to us – we have come a long way – we are determined to retain the league title and still very much on course – we are hoping to do our possible best to retain the trophy.”
While defending his side poor away records in the out-going league season, Baba Ganaru said that, “You are right on our poor away records, at the time have lost about 7-8 players – some to the national team assignments and other to injuries but now we have improved so well in our recent games but the matches we have played where we deserved a victory we don’t get them because of the Nigeria factor.”
Speaking on his feelings on having his side playing without its supporters, he said, “its going to be a big disadvantage for us, I don’t like it at all playing without the supporters – we have close to 20,000 to 25,000 fans – we are going to miss them.”
Despite growing uncertainty surrounding the future of Babaganaru Muhammed at Kano Pillars after five years at the club, the Kano-born tactician hopes complete a double by keeping them on the top at the end of the season.
Kano Pillars who are league leaders have accrued 60 points from 36 matches with two games to go but faces huge competition against Enyimba, despite a point separating both teams.
