Adegbite: Rangers feel confident

28 July 2015, 11:04

Abuja - Razaq Adegbite has reflected on Enugu Rangers' confident mindset heading into the match-day 20 Nigeria Professional Football League match against Enyimba FC.

The Enyimba International Stadium plays host next weekend for the encounter between Oriental Rivals, with the former Enyimba star eagerly anticipating the test.

“It’s a long road to get here, with difficult moments and you know that a small detail can leave you out of the match,” commented Adegbite in an interview with News24 on Monday.

The Flying Antelopes lost 2-1 at home against the People's Elephants in a week 19 encounter.

“We’re where we wanted to be, in the top half of the table, but I believe we belong to the title cadre. It should be a very exciting match. It’s an Oriental Derby against Enyimba, but it will be different from the games that we usually play. I really relish playing such games.

“All the ingredients are there to make it a great day and we hope that this time around we end it feeling good and happy.

“The confidence is in the team. We’re in good form, we have forgotten about the week 19 loss. All our ambition is focused on winning in Aba. It promises to be an exciting 90 minutes of football. We’re going to give our all to win it.

“If we play a good match and are on form we’re going to have chances to win the match, but Enyimba has a very competitive team that will face the match with the same determination as we do. We can’t afford to let them feel comfortable.”
