Algeria CAFCC: It’s Going To Be A Feisty Affair Against E.S Setif- Osho

Enyimba head coach Fatai Osho has admitted that their CAF Confederation Cup tie against ES Setif will be a feisty affair.

The People’s Elephants will host the Algerian side in Matchday 3 of the continental interclub competition.

Enyimba have experienced good fortunes against Algerian sides on the continent, stretching back to the fairytale maiden Champions League triumph in 2003.

Osho in his pre- match conference with the club official media said, “ES Setif has a point from six and they know if they don’t add to that tally it will be a bit difficult for them. 

A loss to us (Enyimba) will be a point from a possible nine, so we expect them to come all out to fight, and on our own part we know we need the maximum points so that we can keep our position on the table and we see what we can get on the road. 

“It’s going to be a feisty affair, both teams will be coming in with a lot of ambition and that is what we expect” 

However, it will be a tough time for Osho as he will miss some of his key players.

The likes of winger Sadiq Abubakar and left back Imoh Obot remain ruled out with varying injuries. 

More so, centre-back Hassan Abubakar joins the treatment table with toothache.

However, there is good news as the club welcomes Anayo Iwuala, John Noble, and Nabil Yarou from international.

Enyimba are currently second in group A with three points from two games, while ES Setif are bottom  with only one point from two matches.

The fixture, billed for Sunday April 4 at the Enyimba Stadium will see the Elephants try to seek redemption after a late capitulation in Soweto on match day two.
