Enugu Rangers kept the pressure on leaders Wikki Tourists with a 2-1 win over Warri Wolves at the Nnamdi Azikwe Stadium on Friday night.
The Flying Antelopes recorded their 11th league win to close the gap on Wikki Tourists, who lost 2-0 against Plateau United.
Rangers were irresistible in the first half, and played some impressive, one-touch football.
Both of their goals came during this period through Obinna Nwobodo and Godwin Aguda.
The hosts took the lead in the 7th minute when Nwobodo slotted the ball into the net after a brilliant interplay with Chidiebere Okolie and Aguda.
Rangers, who played very well in front of their fans, made it 2-0 in the 39th minute when Aguda buried his spot kick to the left hand side of Dele Ajiboye’s post.
Wolves fought back. They were rewarded for their efforts when Zinte Udeh benefitted from a slow reaction by goalkeeper Bonsu to score in the 43rd minute.
In the end, though, Rangers held on for an important win.
