Kano Pillars must pull all the stuns in Kumasi today, as they face Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko in the second leg CAF champions league tie.
Pillars have a slim advantage from the 3-2 home win they posted against Kotoko. It is like a walk in a minefield for the Nigerian representatives as they need to avoid defeat by all means or at least get a respectable draw. However, according to coach Ibrahim Musa Pillars, will not sit back and defend, but will push for a win against Kotoko.
“We are preparing massively to come to Ghana and beat them because my team is doing well and I trust them,” Musa told Kumasi FM in Ghana.
“I will come to Ghana and play good football to qualify.
“We conceded two set-pieces goals-against Kotoko and we have worked on them before coming to Ghana.”
Pillars are making a sixth appearance in the Champions League and have only failed to make it past the preliminary stage once in 2014.
Aside from shooting themselves with the non-completion of registration formalities for four of their first-team players, there are no fresh injury worries for Pillars going into the tie.
