Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa has finally made his second debut for Kano Pillars after rejoining the Nigeria Professional League (NPFL) side on a short term deal.

It was a cagey game with very few chances, and Musa struggled for a long time.

In the 80th minute, however, he set up with the only goal of the game with a through pass to Rabiu Ali, who finished with his left foot to make amends for his missed spot-kick earlier.

Musa was also the captain of the day after Ali handed him the captain’s armband before kickoff.

With the win, Pillars maintain the second position on the table with 40 points from 21 matches.

There were four away wins on this matchday; Leaders Akwa United retained the top spot following a 2-0 win against local rivals Dakkada in Uyo.

Charles Atshimene bagged a brace, scoring in the 11th and 48th minutes.
