Enyimba put NPFL loss behind ahead of CAF CL tie

09 March 2016, 13:14

Aba - Enyimba attacking midfielder Ikechukwu Ibenegbu says his side has put the 2-0 loss to El Kanemi in a week five game of the Nigeria Premier League behind, ahead of the CAF Champions League fixture against Burundi’s Vital’O FC.

The Nigerian champions will host the East African side in Sunday’s Caf Champions League second round first leg clash at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt.

“Of course, our performance or position on the domestic league will not count at all against the Burundian side, Vital’O FC on Sunday in Port Harcourt,” he said to SuperSport.

“The Caf Champions League is an entirely different ball game compared with the domestic league.

“We have challenges with the new players in our midst who are yet to blend perfectly well with the rest of the team which I believe in the very shortest time that will be history.

“We have two matches to spare against Sunshine Stars and Ikorodu United, we are certain to improve our fortune on the log after the matches.”

The reverse fixture is expected to hold in fortnight at the Prince Louis Rwagasore Stadium in Bujumbura, Burundi.
