Enyimba defender Benjamin Francis says the Nigerian side is determined to win their CAF Confederation Cup match away to Mali’s Djoliba this coming weekend.

The People’s Elephant find themselves in third place in Group C of the continental competition, with six points from four matches. They succumbed 2-0 away to leaders Williamsville AC of Ivory Coast at the end of July.

This coming Sunday they will take to the Stade Modibo Keita in Bamako to battle last-placed Djoliba.

“Games between Enyimba and West African teams are always difficult,” Francis told Football Live. “For us, we want to go to Bamako and win.

“We want to improve our points haul so it is important we go all out and get a win. We said to ourselves we were going to win [our] remaining games in the group.”

Group C is the most open in the competition this year, with just three points covering the four teams as they head into the penultimate round of matches this weekend. The other group game sees Congo side CARA Brazzaville host Williamsville.
