Rangers FC currently occupies the third position at the league table ahead of Remo Stars who occupied the fourth.

Maikaba said, “We are prepared for the Remo Stars match like any other game but what is special about the match is that we are contending for third position with them.

“Our destiny of taking a deserved leap over them is in our hands, so we have to leave Ikenne with a good result.

“Based on what I saw from the players in our training, we shall have a good result in Ikenne and consolidate on achieving our set target for the season.”
