Rangers International are going into the Matchday 9 clash with Katsina United on Sunday with some players hitherto sidelined by injury now available for selection.
It is a boost to the former champions squad options as three players that missed a couple of matches due to injury and bereavement made a full return to training earlier in the week.
Nobert Okolie, the Club Media Officer in a late Friday despatch revealed that the duo of Kalu Nweke and Chinemerem Ugwueze who have been on the treatment room rejoined the squad in training and are likely to be given shirts for the game at the Awka City Stadium on Sunday.
“Kalu Nweke and Chinemerem Ugwueze, who have missed almost half of the already prosecuted matches due to various injuries sustained while defending the club’s colors, are fit for selection for this weekend’s fixture”, Okolie revealed.
Another returnee to the squad is Naziru Auwalu who had to travel to participate in final burial rites of passage for his late mum.
Okolie wrote, “Auwalu, who has been missing in action due to the sudden death of his loving mother late last month and traveled to join other family members to give her a befitting burial returned to training and is showing signs of fitness to make the club’s supporters proud in the remaining fixtures of the season.”
Auwalu was quoted to have extended appreciation to his mates, Coaches and the club management for their show of solidarity during his mourning period.
“I am delighted at the show of solidarity you all showed me when I lost my mother. I thank you all and may Allah reward you all for the support which was very handy in my painful moment,” said Auwalu on his return to training.
