Rangers assistant coach Mbwas Magnut believes that his side deserved to have won the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) week five match against MFM FC on Sunday.
The two sides settled for a 1-1 draw at Agege Stadium aka Soccer Temple.
The sublime football trickery of the visitors’ creative midfielder, Ugochukwu Ugwuoke was a handful for MFM when he side footed in past a bemused goalkeeper, Abayomi Folarin after Dauda Madaki had set him up with a headed effort.
However, the host reacted well to the setback just five minutes later as some slack defending allowed Balogun Muyiwa to poke home past a stranded Nana Bonsu to the relief of the hosts’ bench.
Mbwas Mangut, assistant coach of Rangers, who spoke to the media after the encounter, praised the efforts of his players.
“It was a good game and we should have earned all three points at stake but for some good goalkeeping from the opponents,” he said.
“We keep building and progressing with more matches and it is our belief that we will deliver the goods at the end of the season.”
