06 April 2015, 07:21Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Warri Wolves heaped praise on goalkeeper, Daniel Akpeyi, after they advanced to the next round of the CAF Confederations Cup.

His heroics saw the side overcome harsh weather conditions and a hostile crowd to book a berth in the next stage at the expense of Dedebit of Ethiopia.

A nil-all draw was enough as Wolves advanced 2-0 on aggregate.

“We must single out goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi who pull some brilliant saves to keep Warri Wolves in the competition and was also named the man of the match,” Wolves spokesperson, Moses Etu, said.

Wolves suffered a setback ahead of the fixture when the Ethiopian Embassy in Nigeria denied two influential players visa on the premise that their passport validity was not up to six months.

This was regarded as an attempt to thwart the effort of the team from qualifying for the next round.

The Warri-based team will now meet Democratic Republic of Congo side, FC MK Etancheiten in the first leg of next round of Confederations Cup at the Warri City Stadium on April 18.

The return fixture will be played at the Stade Tata Raphael in Kinshasa on the weekend of May 1-3
