Super 4 dream not over for Rangers



Enugu Rangers' right full back, Ugonna Uzochukwu has said his side's Nigeria Premier League Super Four title hope is still alive.

The Coal City side on Wednesday at the Sani Abacha Stadium, Kano suffered an opening match 0-1 defeat to Lobi Stars.

Uzochukwu said the Flying Antelopes will bounce back to reckoning and will surely claim the Super Four title.

"Hard luck caused us the defeat in the encounter against Lobi Stars. We did the playing only for Lobi to sneak in at the dying minutes to snatch the winner. Several occasions had our efforts at goal denied by the woodwork.

"The defeat is surely a momentary setback, we'll overcome it in the next two matches and go ahead to clinch the title," said the Super Eagles defensive midfielder to supersport.com.

Uzochukwu said the hostilities at the tournament will help the teams greatly in their respective continental assignments.

"The tournament is worth every token invested in the organisation.

"It will help us identify our strong and weak points before the start of the continental assignment," he said.

Rangers will tackle oriental foes, Heartland and round off their campaign with a duel against domestic champions, Kano Pillars who went down 0-1 to Cup holders, Heartland in Matchday 1 on Wednesday.

Kano Pillars and Rangers will campaign in the Caf Champions League while the duo, Heartland and Lobi will vie for honour in the Confederation Cup.
