The first 45 minutes was without a spark untill Lobi Stars forward Samad Kadiri capitalised on an error by Rangers captain, Okey Odita to score the only goal of the game in the first half addition time.
The Makurdi based team almost doubled their lead in 67th minutes when a corner kick by Solomon Kwambe was headed on target by Tony Agbaji before Rangers cleared it off the goal line.
Rangers were reduced to ten men as Solomon Okpako was given his matching order after a rough challenge on Lobi stars latest arrival Sikiru Alimi in the 81st minutes.
