Warri Wolves say they are determined to replicate Vita Club de Mokanda of Congo feat who shockingly saw off Akwa United in the CAF Confederation Cup preliminary round game despite losing 0-1 at Pointe Noire in the first leg.
Wolves who pride themselves as Seasiders were pegged 1-0 by Al Merreikh of Sudan in Sunday's CAF Champions League First Round, first leg match in Warri, are hoping to cancel out the deficit and go ahead to book a Second Round ticket in Khartoum on Saturday, chairman of the club, Moses Etu has told Completesportsnigeria.com.
"I've told the players who came to apologise after the game that they should put the loss behind and face the return leg match on Saturday in Khartoum, Etu told Completesportsnigeria.com on Tuesday.
"I made it clear to them that they should learn from their mistakes in the match especially frittering away scoring opportunities.
"I told them to remain positive and take courage and believe in themselves and their ability to replicate what Vita Club de Mokanda did against Akwa United.
"I made it clear to them that if Vita Club de Mokanda can erase a first leg home defeat on away ground and go ahead to win from the penalty kicks why can't we perform similar feat in Sudan," Etu said to Completesportsnigeria.com.
Warri Wolves will depart the shores of Nigeria Thursday March 17, 2016 for Sudan with a 37-man contingent comprising 18 players and 19 officials.
The delegation will be air-lifted by Ethiopia Airline through the Murtala Mohammed Airport, Lagos.Jiji.ng the cheapest online shopping in Nigeria
