Chairman of Kano Pillars FC, Alhaji Ibrahim Haruna has expressed satisfaction with the performance of his players in the 2-2 draw against visiting Sunshine Stars of Akure.Gambo Mohammed-Kano pillars-Shengolpixs-300

The defending champions surrendered their lead to the Akure side and had to wait until the dying minutes when Super Eagles striker, Gambo Mohammed struck to level scores.

Speaking to Daily Trust, Haruna said even though his team did not pick the maximum points, he was very satisfied with the performance of his players.

He said in football such results are common because it is one thing to play very well and another to score and win convincingly.

The chairman said had his players converted all the chances they created, Sunshine wouldn’t have gone home with less than six goals.

“I cannot say that I am disappointed. I am happy with the performance of my players. They did very well just that the goals refused to come.

“Things like this happen in the game of football. It is one thing to play very well and another to score goals.

The boys outplayed their opponents but the goals did not come.

“Had they scored all the goals, they would have beaten Sunshine by at least six goals. So I cannot say I was disappointed”.

Haruna expressed confidence that very soon Pillars will return to winning ways.

“It is too early in the day for anyone to panic. We have so many matches to play and very soon, we shall start winning again.

“Everybody knows what Pillars are capable of doing so the team should not be judged by a single match”, he said.
