The Nigeria Premier League Club, Warri Wolves, are through to the next round of this season’s CAF Confederation Cup following their 0-0 draw against Dedebit FC of Ethiopia on Sunday.
The team advanced on a 2-0 aggregate and are now going to battle MK Etancheite of DR Congo as they target a place in the group stage of the competition.
Warri Wolves are now the only Nigerian club side still in contention in this year’s CAF club competitions as the other three teams flying the country’s flag Enyimba, Kano Pillars and Dolphins have all been sent packing.
Wolves got thumps up for their resilience as they had some visa hitch and were unable to take some of their key players like Captain Azubuike Egwuekwe and goalkeeper Okemutie Odah to Addis Ababa, but Head Coach, Paul Aigbogun, was still able to lead his side through.
Warri Wolves’ next round opponents, MK Etancheite, are featuring in the CAF Confederation Cup for the second time, after their debut in the year 2014 when they crashed out at the first round.
