According to Ilechukwu, “It was a good game against a great side under a quality coach.

” It was not the result that we wanted but we are going back to work on the weak areas ahead of our next match.

“We had a better second stanza due largely to the introduction of some of our key players who needed to be rested.

“We are still building our team and hope to get it right soon.”

Rangers remain in first place in the league log with 64 points from 36 games, and they will next face Bendel Insurance F.C. on Sunday, June 16, 2024, at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium in Enugu.
