LOCAL NPFL SPORTS GIST KANO PILLARS HAS REACHED A TURNING POINT – NWAGWA By Admin Posted on December 5, 2019 2 min read 0 0 177 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Kano Pillars forward Nyima Nwagwa says his side’s 2-1 win away to Akwa Starlets FC of Uyo at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium on Wednesday, marks the turning point for the four time champions to launch a challenge for another title. Coach Ibrahim Musa had come under fire from fans as his side were without a win in five attempts, going into the rescheduled MatchDay 2 fixture in Uyo, and were yet to score in the current campaign. Nwagwa while admitting the team’s poor start to the campaign, said the victory against the new comers will now propel Pillars to put behind the nightmare of the past five matchdays. “We (Pillars) lost a couple of strikers before start of the season and I had to step forward to do my best this season. We started this season on a low key and it has been disappointing”. “We have been working very hard to get it right, and we are delighted we got rewarded today. This is the turning point. I feel we have succeeded in gathering the needed momentum and confidence that will propel our performance in upcoming fixtures”, Nwagwa told www.npfl.ng. The former Lobi Stars striker got Pillars to the lead in the fixture on 27th minutes, before Michael Effiong drew Starlets level in the 75th minute. Nwagwa sealed the win three minutes later for the Kano side. Pillars welcome Delta Force on Matchday 7 at the Sani Abacha stadium on Sunday.
