NPFL: Katsina United strive to keep unbeaten run

Katsina United are hoping to maintain their unbeaten run as they visit the Sanni Abacha Stadium today to tackle points chasing Kano Pillars.

Katsina United player, Tasiu Lawal said though they have respect for Kano Pillars, Katsina United will be out to get a good result. The  coach Baldwin Bazuaye’s side last suffered defeat on January 25, in Maiduguri and have since gone five matches unscathed.

“We will face a tough match in Kano but we are up to the task,” Lawal told Goal.

“Having gone five games without defeat and yet to be beaten this month we will strive to protect our unbeaten run there.

“We are going into the match at the back of a good home win against FC Ifeanyiubah  and we are ready to extend it against them on Sunday.”

The Northern side are sixth on the log with 13 points from nine matches.

However, Kano Pillars winger Amos Gyang said Katsina United will not leave Kano smiling.

“Katsina United are a good side. We respect them a lot though they just got promoted to the NPFL but that does not take anything away from them.

“They are a strong side but we are ready for them. We are determined to get the three points at home and make our fans happy.”
