Enugu Rangers International head coach Gbenga Ogunbote has provided the reasons for his team’s loss at Etoile du Sahel last weekend.

The Flying Antelopes came out as 2-1 losers, leaving them third in Group B with three more games to go before the quarter-final places are confirmed.

“The match has been played. We scored first but lost eventually. I think all we can do is take the positive things from this game and wait for the return leg,” Ogunbote told This Day Live.

Meanwhile, Sahel coach Roger Lamerre said the points were simply mission accomplished for his side.

“What mattered in this game were the points and we were successful in getting them today.

“Despite having conceded first, we managed to come back which wasn’t easy. We are fully satisfied because we are back in the race for qualification. The consecutive games we have been playing have taken a toll on the players which resulted in many injuries.”

The Nigerians next take on Sahel at home on 3 March 2019.
