Defender Isiaka Oladuntoye admitted that Enugu Rangers’ 1-0 win over MFM FC in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) on Sunday was ‘difficult’, but insists that his men are ‘confident’.
A solitary goal from Seka Pascal handed all three points to the Flying Antelopes at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium.
The Flying Antelopes are on top of the NPFL Group A ladder with 31 points from 14 games.
“It’s hard to win here because of who we play against,” Oladuntoye told Footballlive.ng.
“They (MFM FC) apply a lot of pressure and they are intense in their approach to the game.
“We knew that it would be difficult. But I thought we played a great game. We gave it our all.
“We’re doing well and we’re confident, but we know how hard it’s going to be.
“We are ready to fight until the end. We never lost our intensity, our rivals play football too – they are playing for their lives in this competition, it makes it all very difficult.
“Rangers may not win all their games comfortably, sometimes we can, other times we cannot,” said the defender.
