The team, though have displayed greater dexterity playing away with two wins and 3 draws, their home records are sources of worries to Maikaba who have added more improvement to the team since he took over at the beginning of the season

Their 1-0 loss to Plateau United is their second home defeat in the league which is just in week 10, consequently the coach have called for a change of venue for the team if they must restore their home pride and challenge for the title.

“I think the greatest undoing is the playing pitch. I have said it before, we should get an alternative,” the coach who saw his side lost against his former employees said after the match.

“We always struggle anytime we are playing here. We are not comfortable with the field. We play better in away games than we play here.”

Had Rangers won their 5 home matches so far, they would have been topping the log with 24 points but their poor home record have cost them dearly as they now lie 4th on the table with 16 points, 6 points below league leaders, Rivers United.
