Enyimba goalkeeper, Theophilus Afelokhai, has said the Aba Warriors must be ready for a tough battle when they face Rwanda’s Rayon Sports in their CAF Confederation Cup quarter-final, first leg clash at the Stade Nyamirambo, Kigali on September 16.
The People’s Elephant are firm favourites to beat the Rwandans who finished as Group D runners-up.
But Afelokhai who manned the goal posts in Enyimba’s last two games in the competition has called for caution ahead of the game.
“The only way we can cross the hurdle (Rayon Sports) is by approaching the game as a final. Names don’t play football anymore,” Afelokhai told Enyimba’s official website.
“So we can’t take things easy. We also need the support of our fans because they are the ones that keep us going.
“You saw what happened in Aba the last time. The fans were fully behind us.”
