Kano Pillars Chief Coach, Ibrahim Musa believes his team can overcome Ashanti Kotoko in Kumasi to qualify for the next round of the CAF Champions League despite the low margin of victory the Sai Masu Gida recorded in the first leg in Kano.
Kano Pillars narrowly defeated Ashanti Kotoko 3-2 at the Sani Abacha Stadium on Saturday and need to avoid defeat in the reverse fixture to move to the next stage of the competition.
On the other hand, Kotoko needs only a 1-0 win to take the tie on the away goals rule.
Pillars’ position has prompted many football pundits to write off their chances of edging the tie, but Musa will have none of that.
He believes Pillars will win again when they meet Kotoko in Kumasi on August 23.
He says, “The situation might not look healthy enough going into the return leg match, but I believe the most important thing is that we are going there with a victory in the first leg match.
