Rangers International and Plateau United will headline the Nigeria Professional Football League midweek fixture.
The former league champions will trade tackles in Nnewi, the adopted home of Rangers and it promises to be an exciting match.
Rangers International F.C will be looking to maintain the form that has seen it go seven matches undefeated this season, while Plateauare coming into the clash with one of the best attacks in the division at the moment.
Having dropped four of a possible six points from its last two fixtures against Remo Stars at home and Dakkada on the road, coach Adbul Maikaba of Rangers will be hoping to get a good result against his former employers.
With sixteen points from a possible twenty-seven and occupying the third position on the log, the ‘Flying Antelopes’ would have to up their game in this fixture against a familiar foe, Plateau United that succeeded them as champions in the 2016/2017 season.
Ties between both sides have never seen any dull moment whether in Jos or Enugu as was the case last season when coach Maikaba was with the ‘Tin City Side’ as the first confrontation in Jos ended 2-1 in favor of the Jos side while the return leg ended 2-0 in favor of the Coal City side with Issif Traore and Ibrahim Olawoyin getting the goals.
In addition, both clubs have clashed ten times with the ‘Flying Antelopes’ smiling away with five victories as against four enjoyed by the ‘Tin City Side’ while an encounter ended in a draw which happened in Enugu on December 18, 2019, while the only time there has been a win on the road for either side, was the 0-1 win on June 25, 2011, for the Enugu side in Jos.
On current form, both sides pride themselves on annexing a total of twelve points from their last six matches as Rangers got three wins and three draws while the visitors, under coach Fidelis Ilechukwu, had four wins and two losses.
