Kano Pillars can still do wonders, says Danladi Isah

The goalkeeper believes that Sai Madu Gida will return to winning ways in their bid to challenge for glory despite their shaky start

Kano Pillars goalkeeper Danladi Isah says his side will keep working hard to improve in the Nigeria Professional Football League this season.

Kadiri Ikhana's men are yet to score a goal or pick a point away from home this season, but the former Plateau United player has backed the veteran coach to fire the Kano based side to glory.

 “We are having a rough start playing six games winning three and losing three,” Isah told Goal.

“That’s not good enough for a big team like Kano Pillars. We believe the season is still young and we will keep on fighting and see what this season will give us. We are still going to do wonder this season.

“Ikhana is a highly experience coach in the country and have the best of ideas to make his team succeed. But in football, you might think you’ve had everything but the luck may not come now.

“I believe in our coming matches, things will come right for us. We will still continue to work hard to achieve our targets this season.

“From the management, coaches and players, the confidence and commitment is high. What we are hoping for is luck.''

“For the players, we must keep working very hard and for the coach, he just has to go to the drawing board to find out what is wrong with the team,'' he continued.

“Personally, I don’t see anything wrong with the team. The players here are fantastic and great players coming from various clubs to play for Kano Pillars this season likewise me.

“I want to translate my good form at Plateau United for Pillars this time and see what the season holds for us.”

Kano Pillars are 13th on the log with nine points and will take on Rivers United in a rescheduled match in Port Harcourt on Wednesday.
