Salami sure of Wolves’s victory over Leopards

05 June 2015, 12:14

Warri - Warri Wolves striker Gbolahan Salami says he believes they will beat Congolese side, AC Leopards and overturn a 3-0 deficit suffered in the first leg of their CAF Confederation Cup clash.

The Nigerians had suffered a surprise 3-0 bashing in Kinshasa a couple of weeks ago, meaning they suffered their first defeat of the competition this year, but Salami is adamant they will scale through.

“I’m sure we will pull through,” he said, “I believe we will not just beat them, we will also overturn the 3-0 deficit we suffered in their home ground.

“There were several issues in the first leg, which conspired to make us lose the way we did and that was our first loss of the competition.

“Here in Nigeria, we know we’ll get a fairer officiating and also the support of our home fans so I am very confident.

“Given the quality of players at our disposal also, I have absolute confidence we will get it right and we will score as many goals as required to qualify to the next round,” he said.

The Wolves need to score at four unreplied goals to advance, or must at least
