Nigeria: Nwagua Says Win in Uyo Marks Turning Point for Pillars

6 December 2019

Kano Pillars forward Nyima Nwagua has said his side's 2-1 win away to Akwa Starlets FC of Uyo at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium on Wednesday, marks the turning point for the four time champions to launch a challenge for another title.

Coach Ibrahim Musa had come under fire from fans as his side were without a win in five attempts, going into the rescheduled MatchDay2 fixture in Uyo, and were yet to score in the current campaign.

Nwagua while admitting the team's poor start to the campaign, said the victory against the new comers will now propel Pillars to put behind the nightmare of the past five match days.

"We (Pillars) lost a couple of strikers before the start of the season and I had to step forward to do my best this season. We started this season on a low key and it has been disappointing".

"We have been working very hard to get it right, and we are delighted we got rewarded today. This is the turning point.

"I feel we have succeeded in gathering the needed momentum and confidence that will propel our performance in upcoming fixtures", Nwagwa told

Pillars welcome Delta Force on Matchday 7 at the Sani Abacha stadium on Sunday.
