Pillars' a true team - Afelokhai
Kano Pillars' goalkeeper, Theophilus Afelokhai said his side title ambition is not built around any player.
Pillars top the log on 64 points with a game at Caf Champions League campaigners, Sunshine Stars to wrap up the season.
The Pyramid City side may miss defender, Papa Idris and midfielder, Gabriel Reuben in Matchday 38 titanic clash due to injury as well as top striker, Gambo Mohammed who is outside the country on trials.
However, the shot stopper said the former Nigerian champions will achieve their title dream with or without the players.
"Pillars are not one man team nor did we build our title ambition around any player, with or without Idris, Reuben, Gambo, among others, we'll win the league title.
"Surely, we'll miss the players especially Gambo but we've perfect legs that'll fit into their positions if they didn't make it.
"Reuben was with the Super Eagles when we played Akwa United in Uyo and we won, Pillars are compact team and that has helped us enormously to cope in all situations.
"For us to emerge champions we must beat Sunshine at Ijebu Ode, a tall order it appears but we're doing everything to ensure we win the encounter.
"For us to have come this far we won't allow the chance of becoming champions slip off our hands," Afelokhai told supersport.com.
Still livid at the semifinal ouster in the Federation Cup clash by beaten finalists, Lobi Stars, Afelokhai said his said will compensate their fans with the league shield.
"What happened in Calabar in the Cup semifinal clash against Lobi is better forgotten, it was a daylight robbery, we're told to our faces that we won't win double this season and the show-of-shame thereafter confirmed just that.
"Against Prime FC in the losers' game that was not the real Pillars on the pitch. We're begged to honour the game so we merely put up an appearance.
"We now know we must win the league to compensate our fans for the Cup misadventure.
"The tie against Sunshine will be tough but we're condemned to win," he said.
All matchday 38 ties will be played on September 07 at the same time.
