Kano Pillars' Aloma Idris has blamed ill-luck for their poor run of form, especially away from home in the Nigerian topflight this season.
Ibrahim Musa's side had played 12 games away without a win, but the former Super Eagles invite believes their lack of consistency will history.
"We are all happy with the victory against MFM. It was a very important win for us," Idris told Goal.
"We have been fighting hard together as a team and given our best in our desires to finish among the top three.
"I must say we've been truly unlucky getting good results away this season and also dropping points at home at some points.
"Honestly, we have been playing well in our away games but most times fail to convert our chances and sometime a little loss of concentration will cost us.
"If you can check the margins of our defeats away, they are very narrow. But, we want to put those things behind us and work hard to get better.
"I'm happy a lot is getting better now and I believe pattern introduced by our coach [Ibrahim Musa] will surely take us far and as players, we equally working hard as well," he concluded.
