The Solid Miners’ striker has disclosed that they have brightened their chances of securing a continental ticket with the win against the Owena Whales

Nasarawa United forward, Abdulrahman Bashir says the win against Sunshine Stars has given them confidence to continue their push for a continental slot.

The striker’s goal was the difference against Duke Udi's men as it helped the Solid Miners to a 1-0 win, thus taking them to ninth in the league table with 41 points from 29 games.

“The feeling after the win against Sunshine Stars was indescribable,” Bashir told Goal.

"It was amazing to win our first away game of the season. We have caught very pitiable figure before the game with Sunshine because in matches we have played very well we have not been rewarded for our hard work as it ought to be. We were all happy that for once we got what we deserve and this I am sure will propel us to a greater height.

“We still believe these amazing points will help our cause to grab a continental ticket.

"We will back home and face El Kanemi Warriors as if we were beaten in Ijebu Ode. We cannot continue to dwell on the feat recorded against Sunshine Stars because the games remaining are harder than the ones we have played.”
