Rivers United fell to a 17th minutes strike from Nyima Nwagua as Kano Pillars inflicted a second defeat of the season for the “Pride of Rivers.”
“It’s not a bad game, We lost that game against the run of play. We conceded that goal out of the carelessness of the defence but it’s part of the game. We have lost today, we have to go back to prepare for other games,” he said.

“We tried our best to see how we could break Pillars defence but lots of misses of chances cost us defeat.”
“It’s another game, we have to go back and prepare for that game. The league is still ‘hotting up’ and every point is important. So those three points are very important and we have to work towards it to ensure that we win that game.”
Rivers United are now two points behind the league leader, Nasarawa United.
