Football fans here in Abeokuta are keen to see Enugu Rangers end their 32-year title drought by finishing as champions in the Nigeria Professional Football League this season, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
The Flying Antelopes who will face Ikorodu United in a crucial clash at the MKO Abiola Stadium, Abeokuta – home to Ikorodu United the last few weeks – on Sunday are close to winning their first league title since 1984.
A win in their remaining two games of the campaign would see them lift the title.
“It will be nice to see Rangers win the title going by their performance and consistency this season,” Babatunde Sunday, a keen follower of the NPFL, told Completesportsnigeria.com in Abeokuta.
“I know there will be some people out there who will not want them to win it but I hope this will be their year.”
“I like their coach (Imama Amapakabo) and some of their players like Bobby Clement, Emmanuel Daniel and Godwin Aguda.
His view was corroborated by Azubuike Ikenna, a septugenarian from the eastern part of the country who supports rival club Enyimba.
Ikenna said: “Though I am a proud supporter of Enyimba, I will be at the stadium to support Rangers on Sunday.”
“Enyimba won the title last season and it will be nice for another Oriental side to win it again.”
