CAF Confederation Cup: Warri Wolves survive FC Kallon scare

Warri Wolves Football Club

Nigeria Premier League side, Warri Wolves, are through to the next stage of the CAF Confederation Cup after securing a 2-0 victory over their Sierra Leonean counterparts, FC Kallon, in a keenly contested match played at the Warri Township Stadium on Friday evening.

Gift Atulewa opened scoring for Warri Wolves in the 53rd minute through a well taken penalty kick while Okoyoh Micheal doubled the lead 14 minutes later.

With Friday’s victory the Sea Siders have moved closer to the group phase of the CAF competition.

The Maurice Cooreman-led side had earlier played a 0-0 draw in the first leg in Freetown  a fortnight ago and thus progress with a 2-0 aggregrate score.

The other Nigerian team in the competition, Heartland, Saturday  filed out against Cameroonian team Haunt Nkam.

The Naze Millionaires had also forced a 0-0 draw in the first leg played in Doulla, Cameroon two weeks ago.
