Abdul Maikaba is gutted to see his Rangers side bowed to former team Plateau United on Wednesday.
The tactician watched helplessly as a Buhari Ibrahim’s bullet header from Daniel Itodo’s long throwing on 6 minutes condemned Rangers International F.C to a painful defeat against Plateau United.
It was also their second second defeat of the season their adopted home ground in Nnewi.
Reflecting on the result, Coach Maikaba blamed the uneven nature of the pitch and lack of character from his wards for the defeat.
“Sincerely, this is not the result we wanted. That is football for you. Our greatest undoing is the playing pitch. I have been saying it that we should get an alternative pitch.
He added, “Plateau United did well. They are my former team. But, I believe that my players did not react well after conceding that early goal. We move on as there are many more matches to play to recover lost ground.”
Rangers will next travel to Bauchi this weekend for a matchday 11 fixture against Wikki Tourists as they drop to the 4th place on the log with sixteen points from ten matches played with Rivers United setting the pace with twenty-two points.
