Warri Wolves now focus on Confed Cup return leg

18 May 2015, 18:25Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Nigerian representatives Warri Wolves FC believe they can overturn a 3-0 deficit from their CAF Confederation Cup play-off first leg against AC Leopards of Congo-Brazzaville.

Goals from Mahamane Cissé, Bokuoa and Prestone Lakolo were all the Congolese needed to bring the Nigerians down to their feet in the Dolisie.

Wolves traveled to Dolisie with plenty of confidence but were defeated by the Leopards, although they put part of the blame at the doorsteps of the match referee.

Team Coach Paul Aigbogun made it clear that his boys will give it their best shot when the return leg holds at the Warri City Stadium on Sunday, 7th June.
