Rangers
Captain Okey Odita is confident the Enugu side can end their title drought  in the 2016 Nigerian Professional Football
League Season.
After
a painful surrender of a first half lead in Kano on Match Day 1 to lose 2-1,
Rangers returned to the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium in Enugu to secure two back to
back wins against Plateau United and Niger Tornadoes.
Odita
told npfl.ng, after his side’s 2-1 win at home to Niger Tornadoes, that, the
focus of the six time league champions in the current campaign will be on the
league title, which they last won in 1984.
“It
has been more than three decades since we last won the league. We have waited
so long; I have a strong feeling that this is our season.
“We
have started on a bright note, winning two of our three games. We narrowly lost
out on the first game of the season away to Kano Pillars. It was a sad
experience, but we are determined to put everything in place to ensure that
does not repeat itself.
“Rangers
are a club with magnificent history and reputation, and we will capitalize on
these to win the title this season. Part of the challenge has always been
starting the season on a poor note, but we will overturn that this season”.
Odita remarked.
Ahead
of the midweek fixture away to Warri Wolves, the former Enyimba FC defender is
optimistic his side can secure a good result when both sides clash on Wednesday
at the Warri Township Stadium.
“Our
squad is formidable this season, and we can pick up points anywhere. We will
approach the game on Wednesday with full concentration and the focus will be to
depart Warri on a positive note”, Odita further told npfl.ng
