Rangers hold Wikki in top-of-table clash
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.
