Rangers attacker, Shedrack Asiegbu has reacted to his side’s goalless draw against Sunshine Stars in matchday three in Akure on Wednesday evening.
The attacker was handed a start and was the Flying Antelopes’ most dangerous player on the pitch, coming close to scoring on two occasions in the encounter.
The draw is coming after they suffered a 1-0 home loss against Enyimba in matchday 2 in Nnewi and currently occupies the 8th position after wrapping up four points from three matches played so far.
Speaking to the media after the match via Lodgexpress, Asiegbu commented on his side’s performance, as he said:
“It was a difficult game to start with. They didn’t allow us that much space to thrive the way we had in our first league game at Katsina United and they were playing with their crowd. That will always add a boost for them and made it difficult for us.”
Rangers had the majority of the possession throughout the second half, but were unable to fully break the backline of Sunshine Stars.
It ended all smiles for the fans of Sunshine Stars after they secured their first point of the season after their first game against Wikki Tourist got suspended and losing their second match to Abia Warriors.
One player who was simply amazing all through his 70 minutes on the pitch was Rangers’ midfielder, Shedrack Asiegbu. This was more like it from Asiegbu, although no one is kidding themselves over how easy the player made the game look for him that afternoon.
Nevertheless, aside from the quality of players that Sunshine Stars fielded for Rangers, Asiegbu was more composed in possession and his passing was crisp throughout the game.
It was crystal clear that Sunshine Stars players were unable to get near him all through the contest.
Asiegbu was an absolute baller on the pitch. A central midfielder on paper but moved into the role of an attacking midfielder at times and pushed his team forward.
He will no doubt be the mainstay of Rangers International journey to success this season and has been confirmed fit for their next fixture on Sunday in Nnewi against the league’s new boys, Niger Tornadoes.
