Coach Ibrahim A. Musa has insisted that despite winning the CAF Champions League preliminary round first leg tie 3-2 at home Kano Pillars will take the game to Asante Kotoko in the reverse fixture in Ghana.
Kotoko need only a goal to go through to the next round of the competition on the away goals rule, but coach Musa said he will not be defending the narrow home win Sunday.
“We will attack because I am a coach who favours attacking football,” he told SCORENigeria
“You invite a lot of pressure on your goal if you resort to playing defensive and so we will take the game to Kotoko.”
The Pillars coach said the Ghanaians were lucky to score at the Sani Abacha Stadium in Kano a fortnight ago.
“They were only lucky to score two goals against us in the first game, but we are working on dealing with set pieces, which led to both goals,” he said.
Pillars will be without experienced striker Gambo Mohammed, who scored the winning goal in Kano.
He has been left out of the matchday squad, while Rahaqqu Adam, who also scored in Kano but was forced out of the game on account of injury made the squad after he regained full fitness.
