Rangers International FC of Enugu are through to the Round of 32 of the AITEO Cup competition after the Organising Committee threw out opponents Kogi United following Wednesday’s abandoned encounter in Lokoja.
Kogi United lead 2-1 before there was pitch invasion at the Confluence Stadium after the referee awarded a penalty kick to the reigning NPFL champions.
Rangers have therefore joined the teams that will enter the pot for Friday’s Round of 32 draw, which will be aired on Sports Tonight on Channels Television.
