Katsina United star winger Tasiu Lawal has been ruled out of Wednesday’s NPFL match at home against MFM FC due to an ankle injury.
Former Niger Tornadoes ace Tasiu was forced out of Sunday’s Northwestern derby at Kano Pillars by a malicious tackle aimed at his ankle, which went unpunished late in the first half.
“He is out with an ankle injury for a couple of weeks,” announced a team official.
The right winger has played all 10 matches for ‘The Changi Boys’ this season.
He will also be remembered as the man who opened the team’s goals account on their return to the Nigerian top-flight league after 15 years, when he fired home early at home against Gombe United.
