After arriving aboard a South African Airways flight comprising a 32 member Warri Wolves delegation, the Nigerian team’s head coach Lawrence Akpokona was rather reluctant to divulge the approach he will employ in Sunday’s match.


He expressed confidence about his teams chances of progressing to the pre-group stage of the Confederation Cup highlighting the missed opportunities his side failed to bury in the first leg.

Despite being presented with a hostile environment when they travelled to West Africa a fortnight ago, the Caps United administration seems to have let bygones be bygones by providing the best possible reception that they could give their Nigerian opponents who are housed at one country’s best hotel. 

Warri Wolves who ended fourth in the Nigerian Premier League in the 2008/2009 season will be banking on players such as captain Goodluck Nnamadu, Christian Inyam and Henry Okorocha to carry the day when they take to the field against Makepekepe who will be hoping to capitalize on the away goal which they scored in their 2-1 loss in Nigeria.
