NPFL: Rabiu Ali’s Brace Sinks Rivers Utd Deeper into Trouble



CHAN Eagles midfielder Rabiu Ali struck twice with Eagles Coach Gernot Rohr in the stands as Kano Pillars won 2-0 in a rescheduled NPFL clash with Rivers United thursday.

Pillars have now moved to ninth on the table with 47 points from 32 matches, while Rivers United remains in 16th place on 41 points.

After a scoreless first half, Rabiu opened scoring in the 52nd minute from the penalty spot after Amos Gyang was fouled inside the box.

Man-of-the-Match Rabiu will double the home team’s lead six minutes later when he put away a pass by substitute winger Hamza Abba Tiya.

Rivers United next game will be on Monday when they welcome Katsina United to Port Harcourt.
