Coton Sport won't be easy - Eneji

Enyimba midfielder, Otekpa Eneji (left) has warned his teammates that their matchday two opponents in the Orange Caf Champions League, Coton Sport, will be tough.

The Nigerian champions face Coton Sport at the Stade Omnisports Roumde-Adja in Garoua, Cameroon on Sunday.

The 22-year-old central midfielder admitted to that he expects a difficult challenge from their Cameroon counterparts.

"I don't expect an easy game (against Coton Sport). And I believe that my teammates are also ready for a tough game.

"We have to face the fact that every team at this stage of the competition will be tough. So I don't expect any easy game whether at our home ground or away," said Eneji.

The Under23 national team player also went on to say that he and his colleagues have put behind their shaky start to this year's African elite club competition.

But the former Lobi Stars man is confident they can earn a result in Garoua.

"That game (against Al-Hilal) is now in the past. Now we believe we can get a good result in Cameroon," Eneji said.

Enyimba began their quest for a third African title in the group stage of the Orange Caf Champions League with a 2-2 draw against Sudan's Al-Hilal in Aba on July 17.

In spite of the 2-2 draw on the opening day, the Peoples Elephant are tied on one point with Raja Club Athletic of Morocco, Al-Hilal and Coton Sport in their group.

On July 16, Raja Club Athletic were held to a goalless draw by Coton Sport at the Stade Mohammed V, Casablanca in Morocco.
