Katsina United has boosted their confidence ahead of the new Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL, season after they defeated an Abuja side, two nil in a pre-season friendly played at the FIFA Goal Project in Abuja.
Ibrahim Sulaiman opened scoring for ‘Changi’ Boys after thirty-one minutes, when he finished off a great team play.
Former Mighty Jets striker Frank Eghawerba also doubled the lead late in the game after his poorly-taken penalty was saved by the goalkeeper moments earlier.
However, the Nigeria National League NNL, champions played with two different sets of players in both halves with the stronger looking selection of Bidemi Abdulwahab, Usman Bello and Ado Ali starting this encounter.
Katsina United, under new coach Bala Nikyu, have been putting finishing touches to their training ahead of their opening match of the new season at home against Gombe United on Sunday, January sixteen.
