The Flying Antelopes' gaffer is unhappy after his wards after they dropped points against the Olukoya Boys

Enugu Rangers head coach Gbenga Ogunbote has expressed his disappointment in his side's poor display in their 0-0 draw against MFM at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium.

After securing their fourth away point at FC Ifeanyi Ubah, the Flying Antelopes were hopeful of earning their eighth win of the season, but Fidelis Ilechukwu's side ruined their intentions.

The drab stalemate with the Olukoya Boys means Rangers have now failed to find the back of the net in four successive league matches since a 3-0 win over Yobe Desert Stars on April 4, 2018.

And the gaffer, who is frustrated by his side's winless run, assures that they will learn from the setback and vows to make amends against Wikki Tourist on Sunday.

"It was another two points lost at home and a disappointing performance from us against MFM," Ogunbote told Goal.

"We got an away point against FC Ifeanyi Ubah and needed to win the game [against MFM FC] in order to improve our position. We had the chances but blew it.

"The first half was as poor and we gave possession away too cheaply and allowed them to dominate. It was a game we ought to have won but we threw away the opportunities we had. 

"We must definitely work harder and improve. We have to try and do better with the ball. We're going to put heart and soul to correcting those mistakes against Wikki Tourist."
