CAFCC: Eyimba Coach; Osho confident of victory over Orlando Pirates




Enyimba head coach Fatai Osho, is confident that the team is well prepared for Wednesday’s CAF Confederation Cup away game against South Africa’s Orlando Pirates.


Recall that Enyimba lost 1-0 to Pirates on their previous visit to the Orlando Stadium in 2006; However, Osho insists things will be different this time around.


“Orlando Pirates play good football and move the ball quickly too, they can play their way out in difficult situations, their speed of play is in abundance as well; it is going to be a tough task but we are very prepared for this.” Osho said.


With this game, Eyimba will look to build on their impressive 2-1 home win against Ahli Benghazi of Libya on matchday one when they come up against the Pirates at the 37,000 capacity Orlando Stadium in Soweto.


Captain of the team, Austine Oladapo, says "The game against Ahly Benghazi was a good game for us and a morale booster, the game has built our confidence and we will love to continue our winning run.


“The game is a big battle because whosoever wins goes top of the group, Pirates are a good side but we are here (South Africa) for a win.”
