Royal Leopards unfazed by Bidvest Wits reputation ahead of CAF Confederation Cup clash

Swazi side Royal Leopards have promised to show Bidvest Wits no respect when they meet in a CAF Confederation Cup tie at Bidvest Stadium this evening.
The police force team's coach Sifiso Ntibane insists his charges will be hunting for goals when the preliminary round, first leg kicks off at 18h00.
"One thing for sure we will not give them any respect on the field of play," says Ntibane.
"Our plan is to score one or two goals so that we gain the advantage when we return home for the second leg game."
Leopards visited King Mswati III's Royal Residence in Lobamba yesterday as is the custom before Swazi athletes go out to participate in international competitions.
Meanwhile, Wits midfielder Sandile Zuke admits he knows little of their upcoming opponents, who won the 2014 Swazi Cup.
"To be honest, I don't know anything about them. They are a closed book," Zuke tells KickOff.com.
"However, we are ready to go all out to score more goals to make our job easy for the second leg."
The return leg will be played at Lobamba Stadium on February 28.
The victor will face either Volcan Club (Comoros) or Petro de Luanda (Angola) in the next round.
