Rangers midfielder Ikechukwu Ibenegbu is confident of a good result as Rangers travel to Togo to face ASC Kara in the CAF Confederation Cup first leg final Preliminary Round.
The game will be played on Sunday.
“We respect our opponents in this round of the competition, but we don’t fear them. We have heard a lot about them as regards being the backbone of the Togolese national team that stopped Nigeria from qualifying for CHAN 2020 in Cameroon, but that does not scare us,” Ibenegbu, who is called 'Mosquito' by his admirers said.
“On our part, we are an equally great side with determination to get as far as the final of the competition with an eye on winning the trophy for the country.
“We are well motivated for this
encounter as the management led by Prince Davidson Owumi has been there for us, ensuring that all that is needed by the players was made available.”
“Ibenegbu added: “We have a target and the Togolese side won’t stand in our way towards achieving that target.
“No doubt, it won’t be an easy game for either side. But we are determined and will give it our best shot.”
The match against Association Sportive des Conducteurs de Kara (A.S.C Kara) is scheduled to hold on Sunday, October 27, 2019, at the Togo’s national stadium, the Stade de Kegue, Lome. The reverse fixture is billed for ‘The Cathedral’, Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu, on Sunday, November 3.
The winner over the two legs, between the two, will advance to the lucrative group stage of the continent’s second-tier inter-club competition.
