The coach of Nigeria league leaders Wikki Tourists, Abdu Maikaba, has told AfricanFootball.co Enugu Rangers are the biggest threat to the Bauchi club clinching a first-ever championship this season.
“Rangers will be the biggest threat to our ambition to be champions. They have a good team, play good football and like my team, they parade a good number of young players. When we first clashed in Enugu, both coaches agreed that one of us will be champions,” Maikaba toldAfricanFootball.co.
The highly-rated Wikki coach, who has also worked at Enyimba and Kano Pillars, has therefore said a win against Rangers on Sunday is crucial to their title aspirations.
“It is very, very important that we win this game because it is a match between the two top teams in the league. A win will consolidate our leadership of the table and also boost our chances to go all the way to win the league,” he said.
“We have always wanted our matches to be live on TV because not being on TV has denied my players many opportunities like being noticed by national team selectors,” he said.
“If our games were more often on TV, everyone would now know why we are on top of the league table.”
