Stanley Eguma will lead his wards out to battle on Saturday afternoon against Rayon Sports in the CAF Confederation Cup in a second leg playoff round game.
The Rivers United technical manager will be hoping his side can preserve a 2-0 first leg advantage against ‘Gikundiro’ and took the time to address our media team ahead of the important game.
In a CAF Champions League tie earlier this year, Rivers United fluffed a 3-0 home advantage by losing 0-4 away in Sudan. The coach is hoping that there will be no repeat of such.
“Nothing has been decided yet. “Rayon proved they are a very good side in the first leg and were very unlucky not to score in Port Harcourt.
“If we play like we have already qualified, we will be knocked out; I have no doubt about that.” he said to www.riversunitedfc.com.ng.
Doubts had been raised over the fitness of United left back, Zoumana Doumbia but the Togolese star eventually travelled with the Nigerian contingent to Kigali on Thursday.
Eguma however disclosed that a late fitness test will be conducted on the defender on Saturday to ascertain if he will be available for selection.
“Zoumana’s condition has improved and that is why he travelled with us to Kigali.
“I still don’t know if he will play but we will assess him on Friday evening and Saturday morning before making a decision,” he said.
Rayon Sports will need a three-goal margin victory over Rivers United at the Amahoro Stadium, Kigali on Saturday to progress to the group stages of the CAF Confederation Cup.
