Ojo Happy With O&D Replay Order

–As Ranchers Bees boss vows to appeal verdict

Kwara United midfielder, Dare Ojo is determined to make use of the opportunity offered his side by the Organising and Discipilinary Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation.

The O&D on Wednesday ordered the replay of the crucial week 30 clash clash between Kwara United and hosts Rancher Bees and the players are delighted with the decision.

”It’s a good opportunity for us to secure the promotion ticket and we will surely make best use of it”.

”Now that the match will be played at a neutral venue, it will afford the two teams to prove their worth and I strongly believe we will scale through,” he said.

The crucial clash was two goals apiece before it was discontinued on the prompting of the Afonja Warriors as both sides needed a favourable result to clinch the second promotion ticket in the division to the Nigerian top flight.

The match will now be replayed on Tuesday at the FIFA Goal Project ground, Abuja.Ranchers Bees have already notched up 50 points from 29 matches and need at least a draw in the encounter to secure the second promotion ticket while Kwara United on 49 points need outright victory to pocket the ticket.

The first promotion ticket in the NNL Division A has already been taken by the Bauchi-based side, Wikki Tourists.

Meanwhile, Ranchers Bees chairman, Hon Abdulaziz Mohammed has vowed to immediately challenge the order.

Abdulaziz who described as miscarriage of justice the NFF O&D committee replay order, said the Kaduna-based side will duly and promptly approach the Appeals Committee for redress.

“The NFF Oganising and Disciplinary committee replay decision is a serious miscarriage of justice and we’re right away appealing against the decision.

“There is room for appeal against the decision so we’ll approach the Appeals Committee for redress.

“We’re not the one that decided to discontinue with the match rather it was Kwara United that walked away so why would we be the one to be punished.
