Following their 1-1 draw against Bidvest Wits of South Africa, Enyimba midfielder Dare Ojo has warned his teammates to keep working hard.

Ojo has sent a warning to his teammates about becoming complacent in the wake of a draw during the CAF Confederation Cup play-off first leg match in Johannesburg.

The People’s Elephant conceded a goal after just three minutes, but responded almost immediately with home-based Super Eagles forward Ibrahim Mustapha grabbing the equaliser two minutes later.

“It was a good result for us, one that put us in the driving seat and a good chance of making it to the group stages of the competition,” Ojo said to Completesportsnigeria.com.

“But we have to be careful not to throw everything away by thinking we are already through to the next round. It’s important that we do not complacent or be over confident.

"I know they (Bidvest Wits) will fight till the end and won’t think it is over despite the first leg result.

“I just hope we will complete the job at home and then move on to the next stage.”

The second leg will take place on Wednesday, April 18, at the UJ Esuene Stadium, Calabar, with the overall winner guaranteed of place in the group stages.
