By Adeboye Amosu: Enyimba head coach Paul Aigbogun insists his team will go all out for a win in Friday’s CAF Confederation Cup play-off, first leg game against Bidvest Wits of South Africa, reports Completesportsnigeria. com.
The Peoples Elephant, one of the four Nigerian clubs seeking to make it to the group stages of the competition, will face the South Africans at the Milpark Stadium, Johannesburg.
The Aba giants defeated Energie FC of Benin Republic home and away in the first round, qualifying on a 5-2 aggregate scoreline and Aigbogun who is also head coach of Nigeria U-20 team, the Flying Eagles, is seeking to advance against the Clever Boys.
“It is going to be a big test for us, different from the game against Energie FC but I’m confident we can beat them in their stadium,” Aigbogun told CSN.
“In this competition, you have to be prepared to win everywhere and not wait until you play at home to get things done.
“In our previous game (against Energie FC) they made things difficult for us at home but our first leg advantage gave us the edge.
“We are going to try our best to win the game. Our first target is to make it to the group stage and a good result in this game will put us in a good position to do that.”
Friday’s game will kick off at 7pm Nigerian time.
