Rangers forward, Osaghona Ighodaro will look to increase his goal haul when his side host Oriental rivals, Enyimba, tomorrow at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium.
The gangling forward netted the Flying Antelopes solitary strike in their 2-1 defeat against Nembe City on Wednesday.
That goal was his 12th of the campaign and it put him closer to Jude Aneke’s 20 goal all time record set three seasons ago for Kaduna United.
And with Rangers languishing in the bottom half of the log, the former Shooting Stars Sports Club of Ibadan hitman is looking forward to continue his impressive form in front of goal, as well as helping his side maintains their topflight status.
”It’s good to get close to the goalscoring record but at the same time, I was disappointed that we lost the game [against Nembe City].
”What is important now is the next game against Enyimba which we will do everthing to win.
”Personally, it will be great if I can continue my form which I believe will also help the team,”he remarked.
Rangers are on 27 points from 21 matches.For Enyimba who are challenging for a record seventh Globacom Premier League title, avoiding defeat in this tie will be crucial to that ambition. The Peoples Elephants 2-0 victory against Sunshine Stars in midweek, moved them up by four places to berth at the sixth spot with 32 points from 21 games.
