Rangers International FC coach, Olugbenga Ogunbote has expressed his optimism on a victory ahead of his side’s matchday 17 fixture against visiting Kwara United this Sunday.
The former Enyimba and Sharks FC coach revealed this in a chat with Rangers FC media on Friday, stating that his side knows what is at stake and are getting more compact which will help them get more results.
“We know we’re condemned to win, we just need to better our position and the team is getting used to each other,” he said.
Speaking further, Ogunbote informs that the team has replacements for players who are out injured and every thing is on course to help the team achieve their target this season
“Though we have one or two players out injured but we also have substitutes for them.
“We’re still on course for our target (a continental ticket) and we’re optimistic that we’ll get there sooner than later,” he added.
He also discussed the distance from the top of the table and how tricky the Harmony Boys’ visit can be for his team but expects to come out tops.
“The gap between Rangers and the leaders(Lobi Stars) is worrying but we are moving gradually and we believe that we will get there in due time.
“Playing a team in trouble is always difficult, they always give their all but they will need to search for a point elsewhere because we are working round the clock for our three points,” concluded Ogunbote.
Rangers who are eight points adrift the top of the table with one less game played will welcome struggling Kwara United, who are neck deep in relegation worries, this Sunday at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu in an NPFL Matchday 17 fixture.
