Pillars still in title race - Bosso

Kano Pillars head coach, Ladan Bosso, has told rivals in the race for the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) title this season to brace up for a stiff challenge from his side.

“We are very much in the race to win the league this season because we are not far off from the leading teams. No doubt we have had our ups and downs this season but we are one of the strongest sides in this season’s campaign.

“And I believe that our opponents recognise the kind of threat we can pose to them in the race for the league title. The race for the title is still very much open at this point,” said Bosso.

The 45-year-old coach premissed his confidence of Kano Pillars challenging for the title on the back of players in the fold of his team.

“In the Nigerian Premier League today you cannot ignore the fact that Kano Pillars have some of the best players in the country. This team have very, very good players and that is why we are among the top four and I believe we can finish even better.

“Remember that last season Kano Pillars finished second behind Enyimba by a few points and I can tell you that most of the players that achieved that feat are still with the club, and are ready to do better than last season,” the former Wikki Tourists handler said.

Kano Pillars will play host to another title-chasing side, Dolphins, on Saturday at the Sani Abacha Stadium.

Bosso’s men are fourth on the Premier League log with 56 points – four behind Sunshine Stars and Dolphins in first and second positions respectively.
