NPFL: Pillars not as tough as Nasarawa – Osadiaye

Enyimba's Joseph Osadiaye tries to get past MFM's striker Sikiru Olatunbosun

Joseph Osadiaye has rated Enyimba’s hard earned win against Nasarawa United at the weekend tougher than the club’s first ever win in Kano against Pillars in week 7.

The Aba Elephants wrapped up the first stanza of the Nigerian Professional Football with a 1-0 win over the Solid Miners courtesy a brilliant freekick from Super Eagles left-back Chima Akas.

“I’ m delighted with our win over Nasarawa United,” Osadiaye said. “It was a tough game even harder than our away win against Kano Pillars (Enyimba won 2-1).

“It just continues to show the quality in our league and am happy that we are grinding out results.”

The former Warri Wolves flying winger then revealed the Aba Elephants ultimate target for this season.

“We hope to win both the domestic League and CAF Champions League at the end of the season,” he added.

“The team have been working hard and unity is key for us as we see ourselves as brothers and not rivals.

“Enyimba is blessed with quality players and am confident we can do great things together.”

Enyimba currently have 27 points after 19-round of matches and could shoot themselves to the top of the log if they win their three outstanding games.
