Enyimba and Fatai Osho face their biggest test in the CAF confederation cup on Sunday night.
They were on the verge to qualify for the latter stage of the competition with ease.
If Enyimba win at Algeria, they will strengthen their lead on the log, and gather 3 more points to earn a hard fought 9pts in four matches.
But Fatai Osho is optimistic that his team will grind the results
He speaks to the press on Sunday morning ahead of the big battle this night, 8pm Nigeria time.
Speaking about the long journey, Fatai claimed they had to follow a long route, before getting to Algeria
“The travel was long, bearing in mind the present situation of the corona virus all around the world which is not peculiar to Nigeria or Algeria alone.
“We had to go to Qatar and then from there all the way to Algiers, from Algiers we had to use the bus in a four and a half hour trip to Setif which is a really tasking journey, but then, we’ve been able to recover, we had our rest, today we had a good rest and tomorrow we will have some rest also before we play the match by tomorrow evening. But I must tell it’s not been an easy journey at all.”
The was further asked about the position of the host on the log.
“Their (ES Setif’s) position also, I want to believe they are not that comfortable. I believe strongly that they deserve more than where they are, looking at the standard of their play, but unfortunately they find themselves in that position.
“They will like to come out of it and one of the avenues of coming out of that situation that they are in is to do well against us and we are quite aware of that.
“On our part, we want to qualify also. We know a result here will give us the opportunity to get close to a quarterfinal ticket, it’s not going to be easy but I think we’re ready for the task.”
