Early goals from Israel Abia, Ifeanyi Nweke, Godspower Aniefok and Christian Nnaji put Rangers 4-0 ahead in the first half, before Kolade Adeniji scored a consolation from the penalty spot in the first half.
Speaking after the game, but Coach Ayeni said lack of confidence and concentration in the early stage of the game cost his team a point.
The former Ekiti United gaffer was quick to take solace in the second half performance.
“It’s a matter of loss of concentration at the early part of the game and you can see that when will came back in the second half the game was OK. It wasn’t a bad performance, we will go back home to work on our deficiencies and get it right in subsequent matches.
“There is no team that is unbeatable and sometime opponent determine the type of tactics we adopt. We are approaching the game as they come. I believe we will get it right and salvage the team before the end of the season.”
Sunshine Stars next hosts Abia Warriors on match day 28.
