Enugu Rangers learn that Bantu FC is not scared
Nigeria’s Enugu Rangers International are expected to comfortably finish off Lesotho minnows Bantu FC this weekend in a second leg CAF Confederation Cup playoff, but the Southern Africans have a dream they believe in.
Coach James Madidilane simply told the media that his team rightly respects the Enugu-based giants, but do not fear them.
“We are not scared of Rangers, but we respect them like we respected other teams. We have a good team which can win; if they minimise the mistakes and convert our chances.
“It would mean a lot to our team as Bantu Football club and also for the nation to see a club from Lesotho going through to the group stages.
The 30-year-old coach also said his team is inspired to become the first Lesotho club to challenge in the CAF Confederation Cup group stage level.
“Bantu have a chance to write history in Lesotho football. It’s not going to be easy but we have worked in a way that we get the positive result”, Madidilane concluded.
Rangers will host this weekend's return leg with a 1-2 lead they earned in Lesotho last weekend.
