Enugu Rangers defender, Matthew Etim insists the tea can pick a positive result against their CAF Champions League opponents, Jeunne Sportive Saoura despite their poor run of form in the Nigeria Professional Football League, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
The Flying Antelopes who won the title last term have picked just one win from six games in the NPFL this season.
They head into Friday's away game against Saoura who finished second in the Algerian league last season on the back of a 1-0 defeat against South- East rivals, FC Ifeanyiubah last Sunday.
But Etim who is the vice-captain of the Coal City side, is confident they can turn the table against the North Africans.
"We no doubt have our back against the wall going by our performances in the league this season, but I'm confident we can get a positive result against JS Saoura," the right-back told Completesportsnigeria.com.
"We know the pedigree and antecedents of North African teams in this competition, and even though Saoura is not a popular name in the continent, they will still be a tough nut to crack.
"We have worked hard in training and ready for the task ahead. It's an opportunity to rub shoulders with the best teams in the continent, and we will give it our all."
