In the day 8 of the Nigerian Professional Football League games played, the teams could only secure slim wins and only Kano Pillars got an away point.

Pillars forced Sunshine Stars to a barren draw in Akure to earn a share of the spoils from Sunday’s game.

The solitary point earned on Sunday has taken Pillars’ total tally for the season to 15 as the former champions are now third on the log.

It is the third time this season that a game involving Kano Pillars will be ending in a stalemate.
