The Sai Masu Gida team suffered a 3-0 defeat during their away match on the seventh matchday at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena in Onikan, Lagos, with all the goals scored in the first half, Footballrover reports

Junior Lokosa, their former top goal scorer, netted a brace, while Jonathan Alukwu added another goal, leading to a dominant first-half performance by Sporting Lagos.

Coach Abdulahi Maikaba, visibly disappointed after the match, acknowledged that poor organisation was the main cause of their loss to Sporting Lagos.

It’s a very poor first half as my boys were not organised, which caused all three goals we conceded,” he told the team media.

This defeat marked the fourth away loss of the season for Maikaba’s side, having lost to Sunshine Stars, Abia Warriors, and Enugu Rangers, respectively.

He expressed a desire to improve and manage the situation better in the second half, but it was too late as the damage had already been done.

However, Maikaba assured the team’s fans that they would work on addressing their shortcomings before the next fixture.

β€œIn the second half, we tried to organise things a little to manage the situation. We are going to prepare very well for the next game,” he claimed.

Kano Pillars will now prepare to face Enyimba in their eighth-week fixture at the Sani Abacha Stadium in Kano this weekend, with the hope of returning to winning ways.
