ABS will be without striker Ajibola Otegbeye (pictured) for their Federation Cup round of 32 clash against Bayelsa United on Wednesday.
Otegbeye will miss the match at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City as he is now Cup-tied.
The striker joined ABS from city rivals, Kwara United, during the transfer window of Week Nine in the Glo Nigeria Premier League this season.
At that time, Otegbeye had already played for Kwara United in the Kwara State Federation Cup final against ABS which rules him out of this week's Cup game.
The striker told supersport.com about his pain of missing out of the round of 32 but trusts his teammates to get the job done against Bayelsa United.
Otegbeye is confident that his teammates can re-enact the 2-0 win in the league over Bayelsa United in April.
"As a player I want to play in every game for my club and that includes the Federation Cup. Unfortunately I can't play and that's quite painful for me. But I know we can beat them even without me. We've beaten them this season and that's an advantage for us," said Otegbeye.
Fifteen other matches will hold this week in the Federation Cup.
