ENYIMBA, WARRI WOLVES FIGHT FOR SURVIVAL
Enyimba player in action
Enyimba International will attempt to turn the table against AS Vita of Congo Democratic Republic tomorrow to progress to the last round before the group phase of this year's CAF Confederation Cup.
The Aba People's Elephant goes into tomorrow's encounter with a massive 3-0 deficit, which it suffered in the first leg clash penultimate weekend in Kinshasa, Congo.
But Enyimba's Chairman, Chief Felix Anyansi-Agwu, is upbeat that his team has the character to turn the table against the Congolese side.
'We shall turn the table against AS Vita. We have faced similar situations in the past and we surmounted them. This would not be an exception. Enyimba is a team with pedigree and character. I can assure you that we shall cancel the three goals deficit in the first half on Sunday and go ahead to score the winning goal in the second half,' Anyansi predicted.
'All we are asking for is support and prayers from Nigerians. I am appealing to our fans to turn out in their numbers on Sunday to cheer their darling team to victory. We want to make history once more by becoming the first Nigerian team to win the elusive CAF Confederation Cup like we did with the Champions League,' he said.
In faraway Zimbabwe, another Nigerian club, Warri Wolves, would seek to overcome CAPS United FC in the return leg of the third round of this year's CAF Confederation Cup. When both sides met two weeks ago at the Warri Township Stadium, it ended 2-1 in favour of Warri Wolves, a result analysts consider not good enough for the Nigerian flag bearers.
The Zimbabwean team only needs a goal to dump out Warri Wolves from the competition this year.
