Kano Pillars defeated DSS of Kaduna 1-0 in its second game of the on-going pre-season tournament organised by Kaduna State Football Association at the Ranchers Bees Stadium on Thursday.

Jonhson Omo’s lone goal gave the premier league giant a victory over their lowly rated opponents.

Sai Masu Gida showed the stuff they were made of on Wednesday when they walloped Ace Academy of Kaduna 3-0 in their first game.

With this development, Kano Pillars will now face another premier league outfit, Wikki Tourists of Bauchi in the quarter-final clash on Saturday by 4pm.

In a chat with SportingLife, the club’s media officer, Idris Malikawa said the pre-season tournament has helped his side to discover some areas that need to be worked on before the league kicks off next month.

He expressed satisfaction with the level of understanding between the new and old players.

“We should be able to produce good squad at the end of our preparation. Our ambition is very clear; we want to reclaim our position in the league, which is to win the title in the coming season. This tournament has helped us in so many ways in terms of blending of players together. I am very hopeful that we will have good outing in the coming season,” Malikawa told SportingLife.
