Kano Pillars interim manager Ibrahim Musa says their target in Enugu was to beat Rangers in honour of their fallen hero Chinedu Udoji who passed on seven days ago in a fatal car crash and was happy his boys came out with a positive result.

Rangers were just on the verge of coming away with maximum points when Junior Lokosa struck a late equaliser to bring visiting Kano Pillars back on level terms as both sides settled for the share of the spoils at The Cathedral on Sunday.
