​Rangers Edge Kwara Utd In Fed Cup Thriller

By Adeboye Amosu:

Rangers are through to the quater-finals of the Federation Cup following a hard-fought 3-2 win against Kwara United.

The Flying Antelopes twice went into lead but were pegged back by their determined opponents who were desperate to get something positive out of the game.

Emeka Eze however struck late in the game to ensure the Coal City side continue their push for a first domestic title in over three decades.

The coach Kennedy Boboye-led side will now confront fellow Premier League side, El-Kanemi Warriors, in the last eight.

In the other quater-final fixture, BJ Foundation, conquerors of Heartland Football Club of Owerri in the round of 16, will slug it out with Lobi Stars.

FC IfeanyiUbah will take on Nasarawa United, while Akwa United and Niger Tornadoes Feeders will fight for a last four ticket.

The quater-final matches are slated for August 12-13.
