Central defender Jide Williams knows that Nasarawa United will have to be ‘at their best’ if they are to beat Kano Pillars in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) week 18 on Wednesday afternoon.
The Solid Miners host Masu Gida at the Lafia City Stadium hoping to put a dent on Pillars’ NPFL playoff ambitions.
The defender has admitted though, that his side faces an uphill struggle against one of the best teams in the NPFL.
“Nothing’s going to be easy,” he told Footballlive.ng. “We have to be at our maximum to get anything.
“Playing a team like Kano Pillars in Lafia is always tough. They are fighting for the playoffs like us. We all understand it’s not going to be easy.
“But sometimes in football, the underdog wins. If we’re at our best and they have a slightly off day, who knows what could happen.
“Of course, it’s not an ideal game for us. We determined to nick the maximum points and improve our position.”
The NPFL week 18 encounter will take place at the Lafia City Stadium on Wednesday.
