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 is 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 said
