Rangers Football Club has said the team would do everything possible to win Plateau United Football Club in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) matchday nine in Enugu.
The club spokesperson, Norbert Okolie, made this known to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu on Tuesday saying that the players are gaining their confidence back on track.
Rangers will on December 18 tackle the current NPFL leader Plateau United at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium.
Okolie said the players were down all this while owing to the club’s series of losses in the league and continental league.
” Now that we got a draw from Wikki Tourist of Bauchi in matchday eight at Gombe, we have confidence that the players will get the job done on Wednesday.
” Though our position in the domestic league is not encouraging but we are not panicking at all.
”A win on Wednesday over Plateau United will help our course in the league and we cannot toil with it,“ he said.
According to him, the technical crew and the players know what is at stake in the match, adding that they have been training since Monday.
”Even before the arrival of the players that played against Wikki Tourist on Sunday, those players at home have never skipped training,” he said.
Okolie said there were no major injury worries for the team except minor knocks which could not stop the players from playing.
” We are working in line with the doctor’s advice but for now, none of those players with knocks has been ruled out. ”
On the tight schedule of the league matches, the spokesperson said that Rangers had enough players to prosecute the matches.
” This is why we registered many players so that we can rotate in the course of the league and continental. “
He assured the fans of a brand new game on Wednesday, adding that the club would get back to “winning ways.“
NAN reports that Rangers has garnered five points from six matches in the eight-week-old league while Plateau leads the log with 17 points after eight matches.
