NPFL: Bendel Insurance vs Rangers to finally hold Thursday
After the failure of the re-scheduled matchday 8 fixture between old rivals, Bendel Insurance F.C and Rangers International to see the light of the day due to non availability of match officials, the league organizers have fixed Thursday, April 25, 2019, for the game.
The Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) match is fixed for the football pitch of UNIBEN sports complex, Ugbowo, Benin city with kickoff slated for 4.00 pm.
Coach of Rangers Gbenga Ogunbote said his side is ready for the game.
“No doubt, we are ready for the match but it would have been better if we had taken the game as earlier scheduled.”
It would be recalled that referees selected for this encounter failed to show up for the fixture over alleged threats from supporters of the Benin Arsenals to the arbiters from previous league games in Benin City.
