Nigerian Champions Kano Pillars have revealed they’ve will appeal against the NFF decision to award title challengers Enyimba the three points (three goals) from their abandoned Week 31 match.
The organising and disciplinary committee (O&D) of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), last Thursday, ordered the three points from the botched fixture (due to crowd encroachment of the pitch) be forfeited by the ‘Sai Maitsugida’ as the ‘People’s Elephant’ were awarded three goals.
NFF O&D, also in their verdict, banished Pillars to the Confluence Stadium Lokoja for their remaining four rounds of matches in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) and were fined the sum of two million Naira.
Media officer of the Kano State owned club, Idris Malikawa, told MTNFootball.com they will appeal the decision.
“We have received the NFF O&D verdict. It is obvious we are going to appeal the verdict because it was very harsh on us. And we believe the appeal committee will give us justice,” Malikawa said.
Kano Pillars now occupy fourth position in the league table with 54 points and their chances of grabbing a continental ticket for next season lies at stake.
