NPFL: Ahmed Musa leads Kano Pillars to victory

Ahmed Musa has started on a bright note for Kano Pillars as he bagged an assist for the club on Sunday in their 1-0 win over Adamawa United in the Nigeria Professional Football League tie played at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium, Kaduna.

Musa is back at Pillars, 10 years after he left the club for greener pastures abroad.

To highlight his importance and how his return is deeply appreciated, Musa was handed the captain's armband just before the kickoff of Sunday's game.

Though many expected Pillars to make a meal out of Adamawa United, the visitors put up a resolute display which required the ingenuity of Musa before their defense could be breached.

Pillars won a penalty kick earlier in the game but Rabiu Alli missed the kick.

However in the 80th minute,  Musa set up Rabiu Ali again with a through pass and this time the veteran midfielder finished off with his left foot to make amends for his earlier missed penalty kick.

With the three points from Sunday's game, Pillars are level on 40 points with Akwa United but the Uyo team are ahead with their better goals difference.

Having failed to win the league title while with Pillars, Musa has said he wants to do that now in his second stint.
