Enugu Rangers recorded a heart-warming 2-1 win at already relegated Ikorodu United on Sunday in Abeokuta to boost the chances of winning their seventh top-flight title.

First half goals by Obinna Nwobodo and Chisom Egbuchulam proved adequate to hand the Flying Antelopes a vital three points while the Oga Boys’ Paul Duke scored the consolation.

Head coach Amapakabo said though the side are close to winning the top-flight coveted prize they still have to win the last day match against El Kanemi Warriors to be properly crowned the undisputed champions.

“Of course, Rangers are in a celebration mood following the hard fought 2-1 win at Ikorodu United but there is a game to play against El Kanemi Warriors for us to be confirmed champions.

“Right now Rangers are not yet the champions of the on-going top-flight but we remain focus to make the dream become a reality.

“The season is still on and we will refuse to be carried away by the momentum as well as out-pour of good wishes.

“We will go back home to prepare adequately for the 90 minutes to be played against El Kanemi Warriors and ensure we emerge victorious.

The win at Ikorodu United takes Enugu Rangers total earnings to 60 points three ahead of closest challengers, Rivers United with a game to spare against El Kanemi Warriors.
