CAFCC: Rangers Under Pressure Ahead of Bantu Clash – Ogunbote (AUDIO)

Rangers coach Gbenga Ogunbote has admitted the Flying Antelopes are under pressure ahead of their CAF Confederation Cup second leg playoff tie against Bantu FC of Lesotho tomorrow in Enugu.

The Aiteo Cup champions won the first leg 2-1 a week ago in Maseru, and just need to avoid defeat at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium on Sunday to progress to the lucrative group stage of the competition.

“It is an unfinished assignment that we need to wrap up tomorrow by God’s grace,” the former Enyimba coach told exclusively.

“There is a lot of pressure on us, not on them because they are down already. And I think that might make it easier for us.

“The first thing we have taken off us is complacency. So we will do our best, taking the game like we are playing it like the first leg.”

Regarding his team’s preparation and readiness for the match, Ogubote said: “We’ve done our best; we’ve done the needful, in my opinion, that is good enough by His grace to give us the day, even though we came back late (from Lesotho). Everybody knows that.

“But I think we’ve had enough training sessions that will make us triumph tomorrow.”

Rangers will advance to the group stage of this year’s CAF Confederation Cup if they emerge aggregate winners of the two-legged tie.
