Chairman of Nasarawa United –one of Nigeria’s flag bearers in this year’s CAF Confederation Cup Barr. Isaac Danladi has promised Nigerians a handsome win when his side take on visiting Senegalese outfit AS Academie Generation Foot in Sunday’s CAF Confederations Cup first round clash.

Players and officials Nasarawa United are already in Abuja with a determination not to take prisoners on Sunday and although their opponents are yet to communicate their date of arrival to the Nigeria Football Federation, Danladi told that his players are all focused on getting the job done against the Senegalese.

“Our preparations are geared towards achieving a handsome win, in order to make the second leg an easier session for us. As I told you some weeks ago, we have experienced continental football before when we played in the CAF Champions League some years ago. It is not an entirely strange territory.

“Playing at home first, or playing at the National Stadium, Abuja is no disadvantage. Rather, we see everything as an opportunity to confirm how much progress Nasarawa United has made over the years.”

The Solid Miners opted for the National Stadium, Abuja as their home ground in Lafia is presently undergoing renovation.

Also this weekend, Nigeria’s other flag bearer in the CAF Confederation Cup, Super 4 champions Akwa United will face Club Mokanda.

In the CAF Champions League, Warri Wolves will host Praia Cruz from Sao Tome and Principe while two time CAF champions Enyimba who flew out of Nigeria and Tuesday will face Uganda’s Vipers FC.
