Kano Pillars’ striker Adamu Mohammed has expressed his optimism that Sai Masu Gida would advance beyond Moroccan opposition, Moghreb Tetouan whom they need to score more than four goals against this Saturday in the return leg of the first round CAF Champions League tie at the Sani Abacha Stadium, Kano.
Pillars lost 4-0 in the first leg played in Morocco two weeks ago but Mohammed the former Gombe United player insists that nothing stops his side from scoring as many as four goals just like the Moroccan did a fortnight ago.
“We know what it is at stake and we the players have resolved to put everything we have into the game to ensure that we get four goals or even more that will enable us to advance to the next stage. We have been told that the magic is that we shouldn’t lose hope and that we should keep on fighting until the very end. They made use of the weather to their advantage in the first leg and we promise to do the same to them when they visit us on Saturday. We will utilize all the chance we have and also keep our defence intact as we strive to book a place in the next round,” Mohammed told Goal.
Kano Pillars best moment in the lucrative club competition was in their debut campaign in 2009 when they got to the semi final before losing to rivals, Heartland FC 5-0 on aggregate.
