He said Rangers technical crew had to rotate players because they have more tough matches ahead. He said: “We still have Akwa United and Kano Pillars to play on Sunday and Wednesday next week. “Thank God we won this match because what matters is the three points and not the scoreline.” In his reaction, Jigawa Golden Stars FC Coach, Gilbert Ubana, said his team played well. “We wanted to pick something from this match but we made a mistake after the interval which led to the goal,” Ubana said. The coach said that he never lost hope of going home with positive result. “This team is a work in progress because they are still mastering my tactics because I just took over two weeks ago,” Ubana said. The visiting team’s Captain, Yusuf Mohammed, said they have accepted the outcome of the match in good faith. Mohammed said: “Although, most of us came from the Nigeria National League, but that was not why we lost because football is all about win, draw or loss. “We have lost, so we are going home to keep perfecting our strategies for the matches ahead.”Tags: Dauda MadakiDutseEnugu StateJigawa Golden Stars FCMbwas MangutnpflRangers International FC
