Despite their slim win, the Sai Masu Gida man said their preparedness for the league resumption was well gauged by the Kaduna side

Kano Pillars striker Nwagua Nyima has hailed foes Kada City for its good display after a 1-0 friendly win at the Sani Abacha Stadium on Wednesday.

Both teams had aim to step up their preparations ahead of leagues resumption, with substitute Auwalu Ali's 76th-minute strike helping the hosts subdue the National League side.

Following the win, Nyima disclosed that the encounter provided them a good test, stressing that they fought hard to see off the Kaduna based side.

“We knew the match against Kada City would not be easy though it was a mere friendly," Nyima told Goal.

"I must admit that we were given a tough time and was quite happy they gave us a good test. Though the league is yet to resume, we need to remain prepared and this kind of match was timely. 

“Though we won, I don't think that the result really matters because we knew what we wanted to gain from it. Kada City are a young side and they tested our resolve but we won for our experience."
