Former Super Eagles midfielder, Henry Nwosu has charged Enugu Rangers management to work on the psychology of its players to enable them to go in the hunt for the three points against CS Sfaxien in the Caf Confederation Cup fixture slated for Sunday at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu.
The Flying Antelopes only have an outside chance of qualifying for the quarter-final of the second-tier African club competition with Etoile du Sahel highly favoured to pick the second ticket in Group B.
“I will advise Enugu Rangers management to boost the confidence level of the players so that they go all out to record a home win against CS Sfaxien on Sunday,” Nwosu told Goal.
“It will be difficult for the players to play with 100 per cent alertness knowing that a home win may not even be enough for them to qualify but the management needs to do its part to ensure that the players stay motivated throughout the 90 minutes. No one can predict the outcome of a game before it is played.
"The right thing is for Rangers to win their game first and wait on what happens at the other match venue in Sousse. The recent results of matches both in Africa and beyond have given us reasons to have the belief that we can achieve our objectives irrespective of the roadblock ahead.”
Rangers who are presently third in Group B with five points from five games will need to beat CS Sfaxien at home on Sunday and pray that Salitas do them the favour of beating Etoile du Sahel in Sousse to stand chance of booking a quarter-final ticket.
CS Sfaxien are already through to the last eight by virtue of their nine points while Etoile du Sahel who are on seven points will be home and dry with just a draw at home to Salitas who are yet to win a game in the competition’s group stage. Salitas have four points.
