Rangers v Wikki Tourists: Champions out to build on recent success?


By:Timothy  Dehibo

The current NPFL Champions, Rangers International of Enugu host Wikki Tourist of Bauchi today at the Nnamdi Azikwe stadium in a rescheduled NPFL match. Rescheduling was due to Rangers participation in the continent.

Rescheduling was due to Rangers participation in the continent. Rangers have had a bad season thus far, from the change of board to the manager and even poor results both in the League and the continent.

They recently crashed out of the CAF Confederations cup preliminary losing 5-2 on aggregate to Zambia Zesco United. But they can pick some positives and hopefully start this season revival after they thrashed Kano Pillars 3-1 on Sunday evening in one of their rescheduled games.

Rangers totally outclassed Kano Pillars with goals from Chiamaka Madu, also Man of the match and new man Ifeanyi George.

It was a good result for Rangers interim manager Chukwuma Agbo, and was delighted. New Man of the team and MOTM, Ifeanyi George also spoke about his delight on his debut: “It’s a great feeling that I did not only
score but also put up a good showing in my first game for the club but again it was a team effort and it’s great to come back to winning ways after a long time.

“Myself and Bobby had worked on this combination for a while now, thank God it paid off. He is a great guy and I think we can make it work together. It’s a superb combination and a great team work,” said George about his goals.

Meanwhile, Wikki Tourist have parted ways with Manager Mohammed Babaganaru also, and may not be the best for them now.

Their Last 3 away matches have ended in a loss for them, recently against Abia warriors losing 2 nil, at the First half of the League last match day. Wikki are 16th on the log with 21 points and need to start getting vital points.

This fixture at the Nnamdi Azikwe stadium last season ended in a 1 nil win for Rangers, and you can almost give 90% confidence of winning today also.

It is going to be a normal game, but Rangers should definitely be picking up the three points to leapfrog the 20th position they find themselves
