Enugu Rangers International kept their hopes up of playing continental football next season by beating title challengers Kano Pillars.
Rangers hosted Sai Masu Gida at Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium and two first-half goals from Christian Nnaji and Esor Archibong gave them all three points.
Christian Nnaji leads Rangers past Tope Olusesi’s corner five minutes after kick-off.
The Flying Antelopes took a two-goal lead in the 29th minute as Esor Archibong spun Christian Nnaji’s pass from the edge of the box.
There was no other goal in the match, but both teams got a red card from the referee to end the match with 10 men.
Rangers were the first to be reduced to 10 men after goalkeeper Nana Bonsu caused an offense outside her zone.
Right at death, Pillars also knocks a man down. Emmanuel Anyanwu was sent off for a second booking after upsetting Tony Shimaga.
The win increased the Rangers’ point total to 56 and moved them to fifth on the table. They are two points behind Kano Pillars in third place with 58 points.
