'Rangers can still win the league'

27 September 2013, 12:10

Abuja - Okey Emordi, the head coach of Rangers International FC of Enugu, on Thursday said it was still possible for the club to win the Glo Premier League title.

He told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the club should not be ruled out of contention as title contenders.

"There is still a possibility of this club finishing at the top. Since it is possible, we are still contenders for the title. So, we are still in the game and we mean business.

"But will try our best to win the remaining matches left and see what happens after that,’’ Emordi said.

NAN reports that Rangers beat ABS FC of Ilorin 2-0 on Wednesday in an NPFL Week 34 match played at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium.

Midfielder Chinedu Udeagha had scored the match’s first goal in the eighth minute of the first half, while striker Ordah Marshall scored the second goal in the 85th minute.

The club thus moved to the fifth position on the league table with 51 points from 34 matches.

The Enugu-based side had won 15 of the 17 matches it has played at home in the current season, while drawing two.

Speaking on the match, Emordi had said he was satisfied with the outcome and had expressed the hope that the team would continue with its winning streak.

"We are happy with this win at home, as it continues our near-perfect home record this season and I wish we will continue on that note,’’ the coach said.
