Abuja - Warri Wolves has denied media reports that the club will not be able to honour the return leg of the CAF Confederation Cup in Ethiopia.

Media Manager of the club, Moses Etu, dismissed the reports and stated that the team was working seriously before leaving for the East African country.

He said their attention had been drawn to some newspaper reports which had elicited phone calls from well wishers and fans the team might not be able to honour the fixture.

"I wish to state it clearly that the Government and those in charge of the club are working seriously to see that the team leave the shores of this country as planned,” Etu said.

He added that the players for the match are to leave Warri on Thursday morning and they are expected to travel to Ethiopia on Friday morning.

Some 20 players will travel.

"We therefore urge all our fans to ignore such report and continue to pray for a successful outing as the players are well determined to do the country proud. We must avoid anything that will distract the players at this time,” Etu said.

Wolves take a two-goal advantage to Ethiopia where they will clash with Dedebit.
