Rangers International’s squad has received a major boost as three key players who have been out for a number of weeks returned to the side ahead of this weekend’s clash with Katsina United, www.aclsports.com reports.
Midfielders Kalu Nweke and Chinemerem Ugwueze, who have missed almost half of the already prosecuted matches due to various injuries sustained while defending the club’s colours, are fit for selection for this weekend’s fixture.
Meanwhile, Naziru Auwalu who has been missing in action due to the sudden death of his loving mother late last month and traveled to join other family members to give her a befitting burial returned to training, showing signs of fitness to make the club’s supporters proud in the remaining fixtures of the season.
Rangers International snatched a late point in their recent game at Sunshine Stars last weekend and they will be at the Awka City Stadium to host the Changi Boys of Katsina United in a match day nine fixture of the 2023/24 NPFL season.

Auwalu while appreciating his teammates, management, and coaches for their solidarity during his most trying moments, said,
“I am delighted at the show of solidarity you all showed me when I lost my mother. I thank you all and may Allah reward you all for the support which was very handy in my painful moment.”
Auwalu, Nweke, and Chinemerem missed the games against Kano Pillars, Lobi Stars, Heartland, and Sunshine Stars and will be hoping to play a part in Sunday’s fixture against Katsina United.
With the addition of these players, Fidelis Ilechukwu’s Rangers who currently sit third on the log with 14 points from their opening eight games have scored in every game this season so far and will be keen to maintain their 100% record at home in Awka as they look to stay in touch with league leaders Lobi Stars (17 points).
