Rangers vs Shooting Stars

In the second game of the NPFL Dozy Mmobuosi Foundation Super Cup Preseason Tournament, Rangers International of Enugu and Shooting Stars of Ibadan played stalemate.

There was nothing to choose between the two sides who played one all draw at the Remo Stars Stadium on Wednesday.

Chidiebere Nwobodo and Samuel Ayanrinde goals for both sides in the second half leave the sides settling for a point apiece.

The first occasion of action came in the 5th minute as 3SC keeper Bamidele Adeniyi was sent off.

However, it was the Oluyole Warriors who looked brightest to score after a couple of missed chances by eventual goal scorer, Ayanrinde.

It was not until the second half that the Flying Antelopes from Enugu got to the groove as substitute, Nwobodo put Rangers ahead with a well taken shot from outside the box in the 55th minute.

A 10-man 3SC didn't relent, but pushed to get the equaliser, which they did as Ayanrinde equalled score in the 66th minute.

The Ayanride's goal proved vital as they Ibadan Warriors held on to take the point to be in second position ahead of their third match against table toppers, Enyimba.

Samuel Ayanrinde was named the man of the match at the end of the game
