Lobi Stars boss Mohammed Baba-Ganaru says his boys are determined to get their first win of the season at the expense of Rangers later today.

On Sunday, Lobi lost their opening game of the season to holders, Rivers United by 2-1 at the Adokiye Amiesimaka stadium.

The Pride of Benue will host Rangers, who are also desperately searching for a win after slipping to a home defeat against Abia Warriors.

Speaking with Lobi Stars media in the pre-match presser, Ganaru expressed confidence of victory.

“I am impressed with the performance of the players at Rivers United. It is an indication that with the right approach we can subdue Rangers.

Abba Umar scored Lobi Stars first goal of the season, and the striker is aiming for another good outing against Rangers.

“I thank the Almighty God for giving me grace to score against the defending champions. We were unlucky in Port-Harcourt and now optimistic of a better performance against Enugu Rangers to earn our first victory.”

The former Plateau United and Katsina United striker applauded the team for their performance away.

“We had the right mentality in Port-Harcourt and need to stay focused,” he stated.
