Rangers International FC Striker, Bright Silas, is optimistic of Rangers’ resolve to beat Bantu FC of Lesotho next weekend in Lesotho.
Silas, who had three goals already in the competition, made this known after a training session inside Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu on Friday.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Rangers will be locking horns with Bantu FC of Lesotho on Jan. 13 at the Maseru Stadium, Lesotho.
The match will be the first leg of the encounter of the two teams in the ongoing 2018/2019 Total/ CAF Confederation Cup Competition.
Silas said that motivation from the management and coaches of the team coupled with self-determination from the players were the reasons for his confidence in defeating the Lesotho side.
The striker said: “We know that our opponents would be a tough side but with our collective zeal and determination, we shall be winners in this round and qualify for the group stage.
“Our fans should expect good football from us and by God’s grace and the training regime we are currently being put through, we shall have a good game with victory as our target.’’
He also noted that in spite of the fact of the little knowledge about the Lesotho side, he was confident that he and his team mates would get the needed result in Maseru to make the return leg a mere formality.
“Motivation is not lacking here as the management and Enugu State Government are doing their best to ensure we are comfortable.
“All we desire from our supporters are prayers and continued belief as we go for the group stage ticket,’’ Silas, who is a forward right winger, said.
Rangers will be making the trip to Lesotho next week for the encounter against the Lesotho league side being coached by 32-year-old South African, James Madidilane. (NAN)
