Warri Wolves captain Azubuike Egwuekwe has warned Saturday’s Confederation Cup tie against Dedebit SC of Ethiopia will be tough and urged the fans to come out in thousands to cheer them to victory.
The Nigeria defender said when reminded that Dedebit, who play their matches in Bahir Dar Stadium, about 700km, North of Addis Ababa, have about 42,000 fans for their last match, that they have to finish the work in Warri, otherwise, they will have themselves to blame.
According to the big defender, the fans can win the match for them by cheering every move made by the players because Dedebit parade several internationals and so Wolves need to double their efforts to scale through.
"We are aware of the herculean task ahead because Dedebit are not a small team. About 42,000 fans were present in their last match so we want our fans to come out in thousands to cheer us to victory,” he said.
“They parade national team players, about seven, so we just have to work hard to see that we do well in the first leg because the second leg will be difficult."
‘Azu’, as he is fondly called by friends, has however assured all stakeholders that they are ready to shed their blood to win the first leg by scoring many goals.
