Enyimba forward Mfon Udoh says it will be redemption time for the Aba Elephants when they trade tackles with South African side Memelodi Sundowns in the CAF Champions League today.
The Aba Elephants began life in Group B on a sour note as they lost 0-1 at home to Egypt side Zamalek in Port Harcourt and face a tricky tie against Sundowns who defeated Algerian side Entente Setif 2-0 away from home in their first match.
However, the 24-year-old forward is confident that his side can get back on track with a good result in South Africa.
”It was heartbroken to lose at home to Zamalek in our opening game but it was a wake up call and I believe it’s redemption time against Sundowns,’ he said.
”We are here in Pretoria to win if we must stay in the competition.
”So we’ll go all out to make sure we achieve our aim which is to win. It’s going to be a very difficult game I must confess but I believe with good approach and God on our side we can conquer.”
Mfon who holds the record for the most goals scored in a season is hoping to break the hearts of home supporters by helping Enyimba to a crucial away win.
”Impossibly is nothing, they won convincing in Algeria with the fans of Entente Setif behind them. I believe God will see us through,” Mfon added.
Enyimba is currently third on the log with no points and a minus one goals difference while Sundowns are top with three points and a plus two goals advantage.
