The Pride of Rivers playing at home will face uphill task of overcoming the one goal deficit from the two times African Champions, Enyimba who won the first leg last week courtesy of Olisema's lone strike in the match played in Aba.

But the Stanley Eguma tutored side who have been enjoying good run in the second tier CAF Confederation Cup will want to maintain their impressive performance at home in the competition, by going ahead to cancel the deficit and qualify for the group stage.
