Rangers International Coach, Fidelis Ilechukwu has disclosed he is afraid of his rivals, Enyimba FC ahead of their Nigeria Premier Football League matchday 35 encounter, reports.

The two most decorated sides in Nigerian football go head to head in an Oriental derby that has the title written all over it on Sunday at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu AKA the Cathedral.

The Flying Antelopes on top with 62 points play second place Enyimba with 59 points and the outcome of the game may well just tell where the pendulum will swing in which team wins the 2023/2024 season.

And in what seems like a mind game, the Enugu based side Coach Ilechukwu has declared he is afraid of his rivals, the People's Elephant.

Asked if the match is going to be the title decider, he replied "No. Tough game, Tough game. Enyimba, I'm afraid of Enyimba. I'm very scared of Enyimba, but we'll do our best", he replied.
