Obinna Nwobodo is confident that Enugu Rangers will overcome their bad patch in the Nigeria Professional Football League.
Last season, the Flying Antelopes ended a 32-year wait for top-flight glory but have been woeful in their title defense, thus, leading the log from behind.
And last week, Imama Amapakabo’s men were left to rue their luck after rivals, Enyimba came from behind to secure a 2-1 win in Calabar.
“We are not happy losing to Enyimba. We had no intention to lose the game but we must accept fate,” Nwobodo told Goal .
“We already know we are bottom of the league and that’s not where we planned to be at the beginning of the season.
“We worked so hard to earn a place at the top of the league last season and means we need to do more which we have started doing already.
“I think we just need to show more fighting spirit in our outstanding games. We can’t afford to lose more points after we lost to Enyimba. We believe we can still get it right,” he added.
“I believe and I know we will not remain at the bottom for too long. With hard work and determination, we will come out of the relegation places. It is very possible. We will continue to come out strong and give our all to turn things around.
“For the fans, we know we are not getting it right and I urge and beg them to always support us like they’ve always been doing when the going was good.
“Without them, there will be no us and I will wish them to keep supporting and encouraging us to do better. We know it is not too late to get it right.”
