Midfield maestro, Chinemerem Ugwueze, who has been in fine form since the start of the second stanza, said, ‘We expect a tough encounter against Lobi Stars,
who are currently topping the table.

‘They are a good side but we shall play our game with our target remaining annexing all the three points at stake to help us close the gap between we and
them. Our fans should expect nothing less than a victory because we all know what is at stake.

‘The players are prepared both physically and psychologically. We are coming all out to get the three points just as we would not want to end our unbeaten
run too soon, not in our home ground. We are positive going into the match and we hope for a positive result.’

Heading into this match day, Rangers is occupying the third spot on the twenty team log with 42 points from 25 matches while the visitors, Lobi Stars are at
the top of the log with 46 points from the same number of matches.
