Moses Orkuma will miss Sunday’s CAF Champions League clash between
his club Ahly Benghazy and Ghana’s Berekum Chelsea through suspension.

Orkuma’s compatriot Victor Namo, who was denied a goal-scoring
debut in the first leg a week ago in Ghana, is looking forward to get goal in
this game and help his Libyan club progress to the second round of the competition.

Orkuma, who saw action for the entire duration of the first leg
which ended 1-1 in Ghana has been ruled out of the second leg due to card

"I am disappointed that I won't play the second
leg against Berekum Chelsea, this is due to two yellow cards that I got in the
match against Foullah (Chad) and first leg of the clash against Berekum.
 I am sure my team will deliver without me," Orkuma told

The Nigeria League top scorer last season Victor
Namo, who was happy to debut for Ahly Benghazi last weekend in the first leg
but was denied goals by the goalkeeper’s bravery, told AfricanFootball.com he hopes
to get his first goal in Tunis on Sunday.

"I am happy to debut for my team finally and would
have loved to have scored but it was not to be. We have good result in Ghana. I
am looking forward to a good game, victory for my team and probably score my
first goal," Namo told AfricanFootball.com
