Resurgent Kano Pillars on Sunday in Pantami Stadium humiliated homers, Gombe United by five goals to two.
Yusuf Abdullahi was the hero of the day for Mai Sugida by scoring five goals for Kano Pillars to compound the woes of relegation-threatened Gombe United in a MatchDay 11 fixture of the 2023/2024 Nigeria Premier Football League.
Abdullahi achieved the great feat before the hour mark of the game as he single-handedly ripped Gombe United 5-2 away from home in Pantami.
The lanky attacker got his hat-trick before the 33rd minute to restore Pillars’ two-goal lead before adding the fourth inside the 13 minutes added for stoppages to restore their two-goal cushion.
At the stroke of an hour in the game, Abdullahi scored his fifth of the game as fans stood in awe at the Pantami Stadium for a great spectacle of football by an individual.
