Rangers failed to secure three points at home as Zesco United scored two vital away goals in the first leg of the encounter but were compelled to settle for a 2-2 draw a pulsating challenge at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu.
Imama Amapakabo’s led side came into Sunday’s game taking after a poor run of form, Rangers looked prone to buck their poor impressive display when they took the lead through Osas Okoro’s 24th-minute penalty.
The Flying Antelopes based on the energetic opening but were made to pay for their failure to convert chances as they took a slim early lead to the halftime break. In the 46th moment, Okoro multiplied his side’s lead.
Enugu Rangers’ dream of securing three points were short-lived as Zesco equalised through Kenya international David Owino in the 71st minute to pull the game back to 2-2, then scored again five minutes later off the boots of Patrick Kongolo, thereby making the return leg next week Thursday a difficult task for Rangers.
