Amajita squad to face Nigeria


The match is scheduled to take place at the Ilorin Stadium on Sunday.

Kick-off is at 14h00, Nigerian time (15h00 SA time).

The team reported for camp on September 30 to start preparing for what promises to be a tricky encounter against the current AYC champions who have a crucial away goal advantage.

Having played to a 1-1 draw in the first leg in South Africa two weeks ago, Luvhengo insists his charges played well and were just unfortunate not to have come away with a comprehensive win.

Luvhengo says he is confident of another good performance and positive result away from home.

"We know it is going to be a tough match. We know what to expect and we definitely know what is at stake but the same goes for the Nigerians. They are also under pressure. We are preparing for battle and the players know that very well.

"Obviously the advantage is with Nigeria but that does not intimidate us. Any team that plays at home has three advantages; the field, atmosphere and the crowd; these are the three things we cannot do anything about, what we can do is prepare as much as possible and give it all we have," said Luvhengo.

Amajita will depart for Nigeria on Thursday at 14:00 and are expected to be back in the country on Tuesday.
