MFM FC plots Rangers fall in Agege

Reading Time: 2 minutes

There are high expectations by Lagosians of their darling team, MFM FC, ahead of the critical match against the Rangers International of Enugu on Sunday, with their coach, Tony Bolus, saying the team will launch all attacking instincts to win the game.

Basking from the euphoria of picking a hard-fought away point secured in the Match Day 4 encounter against Uyo-based Dakkada, Bolus said that a maximum points against second placed Rangers was non-negotiable.

The Olukoya Boys will trade tackles with the Flying Antelope in the Match Day 5 of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) at the soccer Temple, Agege Stadium at 4 p.m.

Bolus in an interview with NAN on Saturday said he had taken time to study the pattern of play of the visitors, hence, he expects a positive result.

“We have a positive mind as far as the game against Rangers International is concerned.

“Like what we promised at the start of the league that we will not bargain our maximum points in our home ground, we want to get our three points.

“We are promising our fans good play, goals and winning the game, so they should keep supporting us. We are not relenting because it is our home match.

“We will be going all out with attacking instincts and we will be using five strikers from the wings because we have studied our opponents pattern of play,” he said.

Bolus added that he would deploy attackers that could outrun his opponents defence line to create chances and score goals.

“We are promising a good game and a good result,” he said.

NAN reports that MFM had bagged seven points from the four matches played so far.

The Match Day 3 regarded as a South-West derby, saw the Olukoya Boys pip archrivals, Sunshine FC 1-0, at the Soccer Temple Agege, Lagos, and a well-deserved 1-1, an away point against Dakkada in Uyo.
