Kenyan International and Zesco United defender, David Owino is looking forward to next weekend's 2017 CAF Confederation Cup quarter-final away match against SuperSport United in Pretoria.
The Zambian side will prepare for the Pretoria test with a big clash against Zambian league game against Zanaco on Saturday, a match that Owino believes will provide Zesco United for the crunch match down south.
“Zanaco is the best game to gauge ourselves,” Owino told the club website.
“If you look at their game, it is almost similar to that of SuperSport United….too much wing play and counter-attacking football.
“They are tough opposition more so when they are playing in their backyard.”
