Two goals, one in each half by two former Rangers players helped Enyimba to a comfortable 2-0 dispatching of the Coal City Flying Antelopes, Rangers in a bitter Oriental War at Aba Stadium on Sunday.
The game which proved a perfect advertisement for the domestic top flight lived up to its billings as Razaq Adegbite handed the home side the lead following a goal mouth scramble that resulted from Uwadiegwu Ugwu’s freekick near the area.
Ugwu, a left wing back who was part of Augustine Eguavoen’s U-23 national team doubled the lead in the second period but was sent off after he pulled off his shirt which earned him a second yellow card and subsequently the marching order.
The home side completed the remaining half an hour with 10 men but held tenaciously to their lead till the final whistle.
