Kano Pillars have finally earned their first win of the 2021/22 Nigeria Professional Football League after defeating Enyimba 2-0 on Sunday in the matchday 4 encounter.

Kano Pillars who prior to this game were without a single win and were rooted in the 20th position and were desirous to end the losing streak while condemning Enyimba to their second league defeat this season.

Goals from legendary captain, Rabiu Ali in the 45th minute and Kokoete Udo in the 60th minute was all that was needed for the Kano Pillars to secure all three points.
