CAF Champions League: Vipers’ll fall in Port- Harcourt –Anyansi


 

By Paul Erewuba
CHAIRMAN of Enyimba FC of Aba, Felix Any­ansi-Agwu has said the People’s Elephant would leave no stone un-turned to ensure that Vipers SC of Uganda bites the dust when they come calling for the second leg of the CAF Champions League encounter slated for Port Harcourt on Sunday.
The Uganda champions won the first leg at home 1-0 and Enyimba would be targeting at least a 2-0 win in the return leg to progress to the first round of this year’s Champions League.
Enyimba would be play­ing home away from home as both teams will clash at the Adokiye Amesiamaka Stadium in Port Harcourt.
However, Anyansi was undaunted. According to him, his wards will come good when hostilities be­gin.
Speaking against this backdrop, Anyansi said he believed his boys had done their home work with the way and manner they were responding to training.
“This is not the first time we are facing this type of situation and we have always come out of it un­scathed. I urge our fans to come out en-mass and support their darling team. I believe we will qualify”, Anyansi enthused.
Meanwhile, Vipers SC defender, Yusuf Mukisa had reportedly vowed his team will send out Eny­imba from this year’s CAF Champions League when both teams meet on Sun­day.
This is Vipers’ maiden appearance in the conti­nental competition and all they needed is any draw or a win to qualify to the first round where they will face the winners between Lioli FC (Lesotho) and Vital’O FC (Burundi).
The defender, who is one of the most experienced players in the team, had con­fidence that Vipers can go down into the books of his­tory by ejecting the two-time African champions.
“We have prepared our­selves well and know that we don’t have the pedigree, but our confidence will in­spire us to win,” Mukisa said.
