Daily Trust - - SPORT - By David Ngobua

Nigeria Pre­mier League cur­rent cham­pi­ons Kano Pil­lars have vowed to vent the anger of their 0-2 loss to Lobi on vis­it­ing Heart­land FC in to­day’s Nigeria Pro­fes­sional Foot­ball League week 10 match in Kano.

While Pil­lars lost 0-2 away to Lobi Stars over the weekend, Heart­land FC won their first league match of the sea­son when they de­feated neigh­bours Eny­imba FC 1-0 in Ow­erri.

Pil­lars loss to Lobi Stars has kept the league cham­pi­ons on 17th po­si­tion on the ta­ble and they are ey­ing the three points against Heart­land to climb up the lad­der.

Speak­ing to Daily Trust yes­ter­day, Pil­lars mid­fielder Shehu Ab­dul­lahi who re­turned to ac­tion against Lobi Stars af­ter re­cov­er­ing from a shoul­der in­jury said they will do ev­ery­thing pos­si­ble to beat Heart­land.

He said Pil­lars are not happy with their present po­si­tion on the ta­ble and would not take it kindly against any club be­gin­ning with the ‘Naze mil­lion­aires’.

Shehu said there is no cause for alarm over Pil­lars present po­si­tion be­cause the league is a marathon and vic­tory is for the club that will last the dis­tance.

“We are not go­ing to spare Heart­land. Hav­ing lost against Lobi Stars un­der painful cir­cum­stances, we are not go­ing to take things easy with our op­po­nents.

“Heart­land is a for­mi­da­ble side but we are ready to beat them for the max­i­mum points. I know they would want to con­tinue with an­other win af­ter the vic­tory over Eny­imba but they should for­get the three points”, he said.
