Striker Ebenezer Odeyemi has reflected that Katsina United will prioritise getting a good result in a Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) week 21 game against Kano Pillars, over playing well.
The Changi Boys will keep a date with Masu Gida in the Northern derby on Sunday.
a�?The derby games are different. There is a different spirit,a�? reflected Odeyemi this week in conversation with Futbalgalore.com.
a�?I believe that in a league game you have to play well, but that it is more important to win, because people forget about the match and just remember who won.
a�?We should play well to win, but winning is the most important aspect.
a�?Pillars are the favourite, they have a great team, their players are good.
a�?We have the opportunity to face a great team who aren’t far from us in the table. We have to take advantage of this. It is most important for us to do well.
a�?Pillars have several dangerous players – Rabiu Ali, Nyima Nwangua and Junior Lokosa – from the midfield to the frontline they are all quality players.
a�?But we also have a good team. It should be noted that we been brilliant this season.
a�?People forget quickly and we will have to prove that we have a lot of quality. We are going to have a great season.a�?
