“I know that they made some mid-season recruitments and have been doing well since the start of the season, including snatching a draw in our home fixture.

“We are determined to get the result we desire to put ourselves in a better position on the log as the league winds down,” he said.

Maikaba recalled that the clubs’ first meeting ended in a 1-1 draw after Rangers missed a late penalty kick but now focused on playing their game on a very good pitch to achieve the result.
