Nigeria Professional Football League champions Rangers kept their hopes of beating the drop alive as they forced Wikki Tourist to a 1-1 draw in Makurdi in a matchday 33 fixture on Sunday.
The game was delayed for about 45 minutes before the start of the second half as a result of disturbances among the crowd and an attack on match officials by home fans.
First half goals from Bright Silas for Rangers and Wikki’s Chinedu Onyelonu ensured a stalemate.
Rangers looked to be heading for victory when Silas gave them the lead in the 15th minute.
But in the 31st minute, Onyelonu equalised for Wikki to bring the score to 1-1.
With the draw, Rangers dropped from 13th to 15th on 43 points in the league table, just one point above the relegation zone.
Wikki dropped two places as they are now 13th on 44 points on the log.
