Warri Wolves’ Aigbogun looks beyond Ethiopia’s Dedebit SC


FRESH from his team’s 4-0 aggregate defeat of Burkina Faso’s Racing Club De Bobo in the on-going CAF Confederation Cup competition, Warri Wolves’ Technical Adviser, Paul Aigbogun, believes his team can get to the semifinal of the competition this season.

 Warri Wolves lost in the preliminary round of the competition last term, beaten by Tunisia’s CA Bizertin 2-1 on aggregate. Aigbogun then blamed that defeat on the politics of the game.

 The Wolves on Saturday in Warri completed their defeat of Racing De Bobo, whom they defeated 3-0 to add to their earlier 1-0 win in Burkina Faso. Now, the Warri side has been pitched against Ethiopia’s Dedebit SC in the preliminary round, a tie, which Aigbogun has promised his side will treat with all the seriousness it deserves.

 Speaking after Saturday’s game against Racing De Bobo, Aigbogun praised his boys for their outstanding performance, saying, however, that they played as was expected of them.

  He added: “We have been working hard to get the team to play to the best of their ability and I think we are getting there. I want to thank the players for this fantastic result and I know they can do better.

  “This is not yet a finished team…we will work on the lapses we noticed in the game so that the team will be ready for our next opponent when the time comes. Our ambition, just like every other team, is to win this competition. And that demands that we shall be at our best form always.”  

  Against Racing De Bobo, Etabo Oghenekaro opened scoring for Wolves in the 29th minute, Joseph Osadiaye made it 2-0 in the 60th minute, while Omofoman Freedom completed the rout in the 70th minute.

Warri Wolves’ next opponent, Dedebit of Ethiopia, defeated Seychelles’ Cote d’Or 5-2 on aggregate. The Ethiopians won the first leg in Seychelles 3-2 and won the return leg 2-0 at home.

  The first leg will come up in Warri in the weekend of March 13/14/15, while the second leg takes place in the weekend of April 3/4/5.
