"But they asked that we shift the game to Monday to enable them rest when they land in Enugu on Sunday. But we did the pre-match meeting and the match officials are aware of what is going on.

"We have written to CAF and they have told us that the match date has not changed. But if officials of SC Do Principe can get through to the continent football ruling body, then maybe the match can be reschduled.
