Midfielder Kelly Kester admitted that Kano Pillars’ Ahlan Cup group B game against Kada City was tough, so was thankful for Nyima Nwangua’s wonder strike.
The striker popped up with eight minutes of play remaining in the first half to settle the cracker with his solo effort.
“We know every team when things are level everyone tries to take advantage of their own strengths. Our opponents also take precautions,” began Kelly Kester in a chat with Ahlan Cup Media.
“At times today (Wednesday) it was difficult to break through but eventually we won thanks to a spark, with that goal from Nyima.
“I am very happy, it is our first win and serves the team well to progress in the competition. We could have drawn or lost, but we won thanks to a spark.”
Pillars are third on the log with three points from two games.
