“We were on top of our game today (Sunday). We dominated the entire game to the admiration of our fans.

“We will work harder to maintain our present form and remain at the top of the league table,’’ he said.

The Interim Chairman of Akwa United, Paul Bassey, said his team performed dismally in the match.

Bassey, who was a veteran sports journalist, said there was a need to bring reform to the team by having more strikers.

He, however, hailed the Rangers’ team.

“The Rangers I watched today is not the one I saw in play last season. There has been a tremendous improvement.’’

NAN reports that spectators’ turnout for the match was impressive, doubling the numbers recorded in previous matches this season at the stadium.
