Enugu Rangers will climb out of the relegation zone today with a home win over fellow strugglers Jigawa Golden Stars in a re-arranged NPFL tie.
Rangers have 17 points from 14 matches and a win today in Enugu will lift them above 16th-placed Warri Wolves.
‘The Flying Antelopes’ have held table-toppers Lobi Stars and Akwa United on the road and now hope to take full advantage of playing in front of their fans.
“We have done well in our two away matches in the NPFL and I believe that such form will continue,” said coach Salisu Yusuf.
“We have to continue from where we stopped by winning convincingly.
“Sure, in every match one is expected to work extra hard as victory is expected all the time.”
He further said, “We know it’s not going to be an easy match against Jigawa Golden Stars, but we hope to smile home after the match.
“We cannot underrate the visitors but we have made winning our watchword. Any team that will beat us must work extra hard because we are not thinking of losing away, not to talk of home.
“Every team is beatable hence, I have told my players to up their game in every match.”
