TOTAL CAF CC: Rangers Intl in confident mood ahead Lome battle

Rangers Intl FC Head Coach, Benedict Ugwu says his charges are in exciting mood as they head to Lome for their Total CAF Confederation Cup away tie while admitting that his foes would give them problems.

The Flying Antelopes will tackle the Association Sportive des Conducteurs de Kara (ASCK)
in the first leg of the play offs fixtures  scheduled for Stade de Kegue, Lome on Sunday.

According to coach Ugwu, his team can not afford to fail. “We are going there (Lome) to battle. A battle we must succeed, I hope.

“They are a good side and we expect a good fight from them, but we are prepared for them and we are going to face the fight as we see it there.

“Their players may dominate Togo’s CHAN team, but we also had our own contribution to our national team. We are not scared of that feat by our opponent. We are relaxed and confident that we shall come out with a good result.”

Ugwu described Togo as a familiar terrain, saying, “This is my fourth time of going to Togo to play. I went
with Rangers as a player and we won 1-0, next was with the senior national team and it ended in a draw. Then I went with BCC Lions of Gboko and we won and now I am going as a coach, I know that by the special grace of God, I will come out victorious.”
