Rangers did themselves a lot of good when substitute Chebe Egbuchulam increased the tally in the 74th and even though Omoniwari pulled one back for Akwa United at the death; there was no denying for Rangers as they smiled away with all three points which has taken them back to top spot. The Coal City team now have 46 points from 26 games.
