Kano Pillars vs Enyimba: Finidi George ready for Zobia derby

Ahead of Sunday’s Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) clash against Kano Pillars, Enyimba International head coach Finidi George has assured fans that his team is ready to fight for a favorable result.

The match, which will be played at the Sani Abacha Stadium in Kano, is billed as a Zobia derby, given the rivalry between the two teams.

Finidi, a former Super Eagles player and well-decorated coach, is hopeful of returning to Aba with a positive result.

“We came here for a good result and to see how we can win and not lose. At least we have to go home with something,” he said.

Pillars, four-time NPFL champions, will be looking to bounce back from their disappointing 3-0 loss to Sporting Lagos last week, while Enyimba will be hoping to continue their three-game unbeaten run in the league.

When the two teams met in the 2021/22 season, Enyimba ran out 4-0 winners in Aba, while Pillars triumphed 2-0 in the reverse fixture in Kano.
