Nigeria giants Rangers International of Enugu are oozing with confidence ahead of their clash with Bantu FC of Lesotho.
Bantu are scheduled to host Rangers in the 2018/19 CAF Confederation Cup play-off round first-leg on Sunday at the Setsoto Stadium in Maseru.
Rangers are unbeaten yet in this campaign and recorded good results away from Enugu in the previous rounds including that flattering 3-1 away win against Defence Force of Ethiopia in Addis Ababa as well as the gritty goalless draw in Algiers against USM Bel Abbes (USMBA).
Yet the West African side are not oblivious of the task ahead against battled-hardened Bantu FC, who dropped into the Confederation Cup play-off despite some sturdy performances against Township Rollers FC of Botswana and AS Vital Club of Congo.
“Our fans should expect good football from us and by the way we are the training; and we shall have a good game,” explained Rangers’ winger Bright Silas on CAF's official website.
Silas scored a brace in the 2-0 wins against USMBA to secure the berth into this round.
“We don’t know much about them (Bantu FC) but we shall get the three points because we believe in ourselves.
“We are really motivated because the management (of Rangers) are putting things in order; we are also playing for ourselves; our families and friends; and we have to push ourselves to get good results.”
