Pillars edged out River United thanks to Amos Gyang stunning header in the second half that helps secure Pillars a fair share of the point.

While addressing the media, Ikhana lavish praises on Rivers United whom he portrays as a very good team.

“We played a very good team that is representing Nigeria in the Caf Champions League.

“They (Rivers United) are doing well in the Caf Champions League and are also a very crack team.

“I will say we are very lucky to have gotten a point in Port Harcourt,” he said at the post-match press conference.

Meanwhile, Rivers United manager, Stanley Eguma explained that poor start to the second half cost them

“We started well but lost concentration early in the second half.

“My players relaxed in the early moments of the second half and that is why we conceded that goal.

“That goal put pressure on us and we failed to settle afterwards.

“When you take things for granted, you pay dearly for it,” a crestfallen Eguma said.

Rivers stays in 13th on NPFL table as they continue their spiritless start of the season while Pillars moved back to the 11th position
