Lagos - Ranchers Bees coach, Julius Jatau Alhassan has said his side are in strong contention for the second promotion spot of the Nigeria National League (NNL) Division A, Supersport.com reports.
The Kaduna-based side on Monday achieved a major boost in their promotion ambition with a 3-1 defeat of struggling side, Spotlight FC in one of NNL's Matchday 28 encounters in Kaduna. The massive win takes the side's points haul to 40 nine points adrift leaders and sure candidates for the elite league, Giwa FC.
However with Giwa FC assured of promotion to the Premier League next season with two matches to draw the curtain the battle has shifted to the second spot which appears to have been narrowed down to the trio of FC Taraba (on 42 points), Plateau United (on 42 points) and Ranchers Bees (on 40 points).
