Enugu Rangers could be without injured Chibuzor Madu, Ousmane Pape Sane and Cyril Oriaku in today’s league clash at home to ABS.
Madu, fresh from a failed move to Turkey, is nursing a muscle sprain; Ousmane has a knock around the ankle and Oriaku is recovering from a muscle sprain.
Meanwhile, Rangers captain Godwin Ayalogu has said that the team have vowed to win the Week 34 league match against ABS in honour of departed kit manager Segun Martins.
The experienced shot stopper stated that the team are driven to beat ABS for Martins.
“Segun was one of us and we will surely miss him for his jokes, diligence and general approach to life. We have resolved to ensure that ABS are completely annihilated as a mark of respect for him,” Ayalogu disclosed.
“It is not as if we are underrating our opponents, but we are double charged to do this for our departed friend.
“Segunde or Oshodo as Martins is also known will always want us to win matches both home and away and that is what we want to give to him.”
Martins, who hails from OgunState and has worked for The Flying Antelopes’ for over 20 years, died of kidney-related infections over the weekend in an Enugu hospital.
He is expected to be buried at a later date after due consultation between the club management and family members of the late kit manager, camp commandant and chief store keeper.
