Rangers international FC of Enugu head coach Abdul Maikaba is delighted with the team’s first win of the season and hopes they can finally kick-start their season after two false starts.
The Flying Antelopes defeated Dakada FC of Uyo 1-0 in Awka in a matchweek five fixture of the Nigeria Premier League.
“It was a good match that we could have been celebrating with a higher number of goals but we are happy with the three points which have moved us out of the red zone.
‘We keep working to ensure we reach the top to be amongst the best three finishers. We hope to keep the newfound momentum that has seen us not losing our last three matches and keeping two clean sheets against good sides,” Maikaba said at the end of the encounter.
For Danladi Umar, coach of the visitors, it was a case of missed opportunities.
‘It was a great display of football from two great sides. We had our opportunities but failed to take them while we conceded through a mistake. We shall keep working till we get it right.’
Rangers will next play Wikki Tourist F.C at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium, Bauchi in a match day 6 fixture on Sunday, February 5, 2023.
