StarTimes/NPFL: Enyimba’s Olorunleke  to miss Rangers clash… Live on StarTimes 

Ojo Olorunleke


Enyimba’s captain, Ojo Olorunleke will be conspicuously missing when the People’s Elephant confront Rangers International of Enugu on Sunday in the Match day 35 of the NPFL/ StarTimes league in what may potentially decide the league title. 

Rangers will also miss the service of their formidable defender, Kenneth Igboke in the “Oriental derby”

The duo are currently on national duty with the Super Eagles.

Rangers would have clinched the maximum three points against The People’s Elephant in their first meeting in Aba thanks to Olorunleke heroics who denied the Flying Antelope the glorious chance.

This crucial showdown between 2022/23 league winners Enyimba, who are currently sitting second on the table, and Enugu Rangers could very well determine the fate of the NPFL title race.

The match will be  live on Beta Sports channel 244 on StarTimes this Sunday at 5 pm.

The first leg match was a testament to the intense rivalry between these two powerhouses. In the game’s dying seconds, Enugu Rangers’ Joel Odoh found himself with a golden opportunity to secure a victory. A perfectly timed through pass from the midfield sent Odoh one-on-one with the keeper, but Olorunleke’s lightning-fast reflexes denied him the winning goal.  

With the absence of Kenneth Igboke, Enugu Rangers coach will have to rack his brain on how to keep goal-scoring monster, Chijioke Mbaoma at bay. Mbaoma currently leads the Golden Boot chart with fifteen goals.

The absence of Olorunleke and Igboke will undoubtedly impact the dynamics of the match. Enugu Rangers will be playing on their home turf, which could give them an edge.

Meanwhile, 3rd-placed Remo Stars will be away at Lobi Stars in their Matchday 35 encounter. The match will air live on StarTimes’ Beta Sports channel 244 at 3 pm on Sunday. With their title aspirations still alive, Remo Stars head coach Daniel ‘Ijaball’ Ogunmodede has urged his players to maintain focus and determination as they enter this crucial match. Remo Stars are level on 59 points with Enyimba and just two points behind Enugu Rangers.
