Bobby Clement - Enugu Rangers
The Flying Antelopes will still be without the services of one of their exciting strikers in this weekend's tie with the Burkinabe club

Enugu Rangers will leave for Burkina Faso on Friday ahead of the Caf Confederation Cup Matchday Five tie with Salitas without their enigmatic striker, Bobby Clement.

Clement copped an ankle injury in the Flying Antelopes last league game with Wikki Tourists before their trip to Tunisia to face Etoile du Sahel and even though he made the trip which they lost 2-1 he was not able to play any part in the tie.

He was deemed not ready to play against the same Tunisian side in the return leg tie played in Enugu and available report also hinted that the former Heartland attacker won’t be available for their blockbuster tie with the Burkinabes.

“Clement is yet to recover from the ankle injury he sustained some time ago and he is not expected to travel with us to Burkina Faso because he is still undergoing treatment,” Rangers media announced.

“He will be missed but we have other players that will take his place. We are going on a mission and we believe that it is one we are going to conquer.”

Clement’s impact will be felt in Ouagadougou but Rangers will be consoled with the fact that they will welcome back Ifeanyi George and Pape Ousmane Sane who  missed the last game.

Rangers are third in Group B with four points from four games ahead of Sunday’s tie with Salitas.
