Relegated Ikorodu United will have their hands full in a week 36 encounter against leaders, Rangers International of Enugu at the MKO Abiola Stadium, Abeokuta on Sunday.

The match holds nothing for the host but may decide Rangers fate in their desire to win the league after 32 years of waiting. Ikorodu United’s relegation was sealed after losing 1-0 to Plateau United last Sunday in Jos.

Prior to the match, Ikorodu United have had a fine run of form with, prompting observers to question why they chose to leave it late before beginning to win matches.

Before that loss to Plateau United, the Lagos-based side had gone five matches unbeaten, winning four, with a famous victory against Heartland in Owerri highlighting their fine run.

But against Rangers on Sunday, Ikorodu United will only play for pride and perhaps hope to earn the bragging right as the team that ended Rangers title hope of elongated it.

Incidentally, Ikorodu United have won only seven times in the current campaign, while also drawing 11 times. But for FC Giwa, they are last on the log with 32 points from 34 matches.

But Rangers will derive inspiration from the fact that a win in Sunday’s match will all but give them the league title given that they make their home advantage count in their last match against El-Kanemi Warriors of Maiduguri.

Besides, the Flying Antelopes will derive huge hope from the fact that Ikorodu United have falling prey at home to so many clubs including Rivers United, Shooting Stars of Ibadan and Wikki Tourists of Bauchi.

But one fact stands. The Oga Boys have not lost any match since they relocated to Abeokuta, with such heavyweights as Kano Pillars (4-1) and Enyimba (3-1) suffering defeats in the ancient town.

Whether Rangers will be one of their victims in their new abode remains to be seen but this is one record the fans of the Flying Antelopes will find disturbing given that their club has won only twice away this season.

This also is one match Rangers need to call up the entire arsenal in their armory in order to win because fierce challenger, Rivers United, will be at home to Abia Warriors in a match pundits have already given that to the Port Harcourt side.
