Israel Abia of Rangers is challenged by a Jigawa G.S player

Enugu Rangers International will this weekend chase maximum points at stake in their Match Day 3 encounter against tough-looking, Jigawa Golden Stars F.C at their adopted, Ahmadu Bello Stadium, Kaduna.

Salisu Yusuf, coach of Rangers will be relying on his players who are in their best possible form to contain the fireworks from the likes of Abdullahi Musa, Ali Musa and Samuel Stone whose late goal ensured that Sunshine Stars left Kaduna empty handed on match day 1.

Rangers backline would be weary of the attacking duo of Richard Christopher and Muhammad Abubakar who on a good day can wreck any sleepy defense for the coach Gilbert Opana tutored side.

Yusuf in a chat said that he was upbeat that his side will come out with a good result in Kaduna since the Jigawa side was playing away from their home ground in Dutse or adopted Sani Abacha stadium, Kano, stressing, “We expect a tough fight from the Jigawa boys but I believe that we have done enough in training to get a win. It is not about being over-confident but we respect every team in the league and go for a win in each of our matches.”

Result of the last five encounters between Jigawa G.S and Rangers are;

12/2/2020 = Rangers 1-0 Jigawa

2/5/2012 = Rangers 5-0 Jigawa

8/4/2012 = Jigawa 1-0 Rangers

24/2/2008 = Rangers 2-1 Jigawa

24/10/2007 = Jigawa 2-0 Rangers

Have your say. We'd love to know what you think.
