CAF Confed: Enyimba seek quarter final berth against San Pedro

Nigeria’s representatives at the CAF Confederation Cup, Enyimba have set their sights firmly on the group’s second quarter-final ticket against San Pedro tomorrow (Sunday) according to head coach, Fatai Osho.

Speaking with the club’s media channel before his team’s departure to Abidjan, Osho believes the Ivorian side still have much to play for at the Stade FHB in Abidjan on Sunday while dismiising the suggestions that the game will be a stroll in the park for the Aba Warriors.

Osho’s Enyimba are up against group D’s bottom side in their final match of the phase with sight firmly set on picking the group’s second quarter-final ticket.

While the Ivorians are already eliminated from the competition following an indifferent run that has seen them manage just three points from five matches, Enyimba need only a point to confirm progress to the last eight.

“San Pedro as at now are out of the competition completely and they stand to lose absolutely nothing, and when you’re playing with no pressure on you like that, some teams tend to play better in that situation and that’s why we have to be a bit careful. We have to really bring in our A-game to get the needed result.

“They should not be of an illusion that after all, the San Pedro team is out and they will be an easy picking. It’s not going to be that way. They have their honour to play for and they want to do well in front of their supporters,” he said.
