The Seasiders failed to better their Caf Confederation Cup outing in 2012, as they were defeated in the second round by theTunisian side 2-1 aggregate on Sunday

Warri Wolves suffered a 2-1 loss against CA Bizertin of Tunisia in the second leg, second round encounter of the Caf Confederation Cup at Bizerte on Sunday. 

The 2013 Nigeria Federation Cup runners-up have crashed out of the Caf second-tier continental clubs competition on 2-1 aggregate at the expense of their Tunisian opponents.

The home side secured their passage courtesy of first half goals from Harbaoui Hassen and Rejaibi Adem.

The visitors were reduced to 10 men on 42 minutes when Ikechukwu ThankGod was sent off, leaving Wolves a mountain to climb. 

Hassen opened the scoring for Bizertin as early as the 6th minute of the encounter, but Musa Najere cancelled the lead when he scored in the 26th minute to revive the Seasiders' chances of progressing to the next round. 

Incidentally, Paul Aigbogun’s side went one man short when ThankGod was sent off in the 42nd, leaving the Wolves struggling in the final moment of the first half. 

The goal that broke the visitors came inside injury time of the first half through Adem, which pricelessly powered the hosts into the play-off round of the competition. 

The goalless draw outcome in the first leg in Nigeria ensured Bizertin qualified 2-1 on aggregate.
