Rangers hold Wikki in top-of-ta­ble clash

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Enugu Rangers recorded a vi­tal away point when they held Nige­ria league lead­ers Wikki Tourists to a goal­less draw in Bauchi yes­ter­day.

Wikki re­main two points clear of clos­est ri­vals Rangers on 42 points, but they would have been a lot hap­pier had they won.

League lead­ing scorer God­win Obaje as well as Al­has­san Ibrahim aka ‘Muazam’ both had chances to win the game for the home team, but Rangers Ghana­ian goal­keeper Nana Bonsu was in in­spired form.

Obaje’s goal-bound shot in stop­page time came off the post to the huge re­lief of Rangers.

The big­gest up­set of the day was strug­gling Plateau United’s 1-0 win at Abia War­riors.

Ibeh John­son scored the win­ning goal for the Jos club on 82 min­utes.

In other league matches, Ifeany­iUbah were also held to a score­less draw by a resur­gent Sun­shine Stars in Nnewi while Lobi Stars scraped past Heart­land 1-0.
