Ending the group stage with a win is germane for the Flying Antelopes even if they fail to get a place in the next stage of the competition

Enugu Rangers captain Okey Odita has hinted that the task before him and his teammates is to get a victory over CS Sfaxien on Sunday and then leave their qualification for the quarter-final stage of the Caf Confederation Cup to fate.

Going into the last matchday, the Flying Antelopes in Group B have five points from five matches behind CS Sfaxien and Etoile du Sahel who are on nine and seven points respectively from five games also.

Regardless of how bleak their chances are, Odita stressed that a win over Black and Whites is important at this point in time.

 “We just arrived from Burkina Faso today (Tuesday), we will resume training by tomorrow; just only one thing is in our minds, win against CS Sfaxien and leave the rest in God’s hand,” the Rangers skipper told Goal.

Odita who marshals the backline of Coach Gbenga Ogunbote’s team said he and his teammates tried all they could to get the victory in their away match against Salitas but things didn’t work out for them.

“We tried and did everything we could to get the victory in Burkina Faso but we were only able to get a 1-1-1 draw against Salitas. Like I said before, we will go all out to get the victory against CS Sfaxien and leave the rest to God.”

The last time Enugu Rangers played at their Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium home ground, they were beaten by another Tunisian side, Etoile du Sahel

That disappointing home defeat contributed a great deal to Rangers’ present precarious situation in their quest for a quarter-final slot in the Caf Confederation Cup.

 While Odita admits that it would be wrong to think that beating CS Sfaxien will be an easy task, he assured that they will not repeat the same mistakes against their next north African opponents.

“That was really a bad game for us, but we can’t change that anymore, our focus now is to get it right against CS Sfaxien, we want our fans to believe in us and support us all the way” Odita added.

While Rangers will go all out to get the job done against CS Sfaxien in Enugu, the Nigerians need Salitas to do them some favour in their away duel with Etoile du Sahel in Sousse.
