Kano Pillars got off to a losing start on Day One of the 2014 Super Four tournament, losing 2-0 to Warri Wolves, but last season Glo Premier League runners-up Enyimba FC silenced Bayelsa United 3-0.

Enyimba’s fresh recruit from Nigeria National League (NNL) side, ABS, Abdulrahama Bashir scored a hat-trick to propel the Aba-based club to the top of the pre-season tournament table, leveled on points with Wolves ahead of Sunday’s top-of-the-table duel between both sides.

Pillars and Bayelsa United are yet to record a point and will be presented an opportunity on Sunday, when the go head to head at the Abuja National Stadium.

Bashir opened his goal-scoring account for the ‘People’s Elephants’ in the 41st minute and followed it up with two more goals in the 68th and 73rd minute.

In Friday’s other encounter, last season Federation Cup losing-finalists, Wolves, dominated Pillars, fresh from Kabiru Baleria’s appointment as new coach, to mount pressure on Enyimba at the top of the standings.

Kola Anubi opened scoring for the Warri outfit when he scored from a Musa Najere well-laid pass five minutes after the hour mark.

Pillars almost restored parity in the closing stages of the first-half, but Goodluck Onamado cleared a goal-bound Nura Muhammed shot off the goal-line.

Efe Yarhere completed scoring for Wolves in injury time.
