Tornadoes, Wolves Light Up Kano

The Kano Pillars Stadium in Kano would come alive on Wednesday when Globacom Premier League sides, Niger Tornadoes and Warri Wolves, confront each other in a Week Six match.
Niger Tornadoes’ striker, Abdulrasheed Ajagun, who joined the club from Nasarawa United after an uneventful one-season spell last term, is confident that the Minna-based club would prevail over the visiting side.
In spite of playing away from its neutral ground in Minna, Ajagun expressed self-belief that Niger Tornadoes would pick the maximum points in today’s encounter against Warri Wolves, which is yet to lose any game this season after three games.
“It is going to be a difficult game for us because Warri Wolves are very good. But we want to win this game and that is what we will do. Though we will be playing our home matches in Kano I don’t think it will affect us now,” Ajagun said to Naijaligue.blogspot.com.
But Warri Wolves’ head coach, Lawrence Akpokona, has declared that his side would take one step after another for every match in this season’s campaign in the top-flight division of the Nigerian league.
The former Enugu Rangers and Ocean Boys’ coach also made it clear that his wards are ready to continue with their unbeaten run in the league after playing just three games before the three-week break.
“We are ready for this game and I have told my players that the only way they can continue putting in big performances is to focus on the match at hand. So we will take every game as they come this season,” Akpokona said in a chat with Naijaligue.blogspot.com.
