Katsina United target maximum points versus Tornadoes in Minna

Katsina United, ‘The Chanji Boys’ travel to Niger State to slug it out against Niger Tornadoes in one of the NPFL matchday 18 fixtures at the Bako Kotangora Stadium in Minna.

 

Katsina United who are still in the celebration mood after they defeated relegation threatened Remo Stars in a hard earned 3 – 2 victory at the Muhammadu Dikko Stadium in Katsina will do everything possible to ensure that they earn appositive result in Minna

 

The Minna club held their opponents Bendel Insurance to a goalless draw in Benin last weekend, this positive result on the road will serve as a necessary tonic needed heading to this crunch tie against ‘The Changi Boys’

 

To Katsina United, Tornadoes are familiar foes and will work very hard to subdue their attacking threat if they have to get a positive result in this promising encounter.
