Kano Pillars’ defender, Jamiu Alimi has said that his side’s 2-0 win over Gombe United was a hard fought victory that shot them up very close to the top.

The former Super Eagles’ invitee stressed that the game was a very intense one as no northern team wants to accept that Kano Pillars is their boss, but they know how to handle them from the top to the least.

Alimi noted that Pillars have respect for the rest of the northern teams, but know how to stay ahead of them anytime they square up against each other.
“We really thank God because it was a very intense game; it was a hard fought victory because of the way northern teams play against Kano Pillars; it is always difficult playing against them as no northern team wants to agree that we are above them, but we just know how to handle them- from the top to the least.
“We have respect for all the northern teams but we know how to beat them anytime they play against us,” he concluded.
