Warri Wolves Football Club on Sunday played a goalless draw with Club Athletic Bizerte of Tunisia at the Warri Township Stadium in the 2014 CAF Confederation Cup competition.
The match, which was a second round first leg tie, saw both teams playing well and creating many scoring chances which none of them was able to convert to goals.
Warri Wolves’ coach, Paul Aigbogun, attributed the outcome of the match to luck, saying that his side played well but could not score any goal.
He however said football was not all about winning, saying “you win sometimes and, at other times, you draw or lose”.
Speaking on the second leg game fixed for March 30 in Tunisia, Aigbogun expressed optimism that his side would move to the next stage.
“I do not have any fears. We will go to Tunisia to beat them there,” he said.
Similarly, the captain of the team, Goodluck Onomado, said he and his teammates would review the match with a view to improving themselves ahead of the second leg game.
“We are going to beat them at home. Sometimes, we play away match and win. So, I assure our fans, and all Nigerians indeed that we will not disappoint them in this tournament,’’ he said.
