Okey Emordi says it is rash to conclude Kano Pillars are out of the Glo Premier League title race already.

The reigning champions fired flat in a 3-0 loss to Sunshine Stars in Akure on Sunday, leaving them on 37 points after 22 matches.

“I cannot say our title hopes have been dashed, the result hurts us but we will go back and strengthen observed weaknesses,” the ex-Enyimba boss told lmc-ng.org.

Pillars’ only win since the restart of the league, following the Fifa World Cup break came last Wednesday in a 3-1 home win against Giwa FC. They saw their hopes of extending their 11-game unbeaten run dashed by Dolphins in a 1-0 defeat at the Liberation Stadium just over a fortnight ago.

While at the Akure Township Stadium on Sunday, the absence of injured trio Theophilus Afelokhai, Ezekiel Mbah and Gambo Mohammed took the bite off the four-time champions.

A Musa Newman’s brace followed by Prince Aggrey effort on 90 minutes sealed victory for the ‘Akure Gunners’.

“This is football,” Emordi added in a live television interview on Supersport TV. “I didn’t expect this type of result but there is nothing we can do about that now.”

Asked if Sunshine Stars were superior, the one-time Caf Champions League and Glo Premier League-winning coach answered: “Yes, they were lucky.”
