Egwuekwe cautions Wolves over Dedebit

Warri Wolves captain Azubuike Egwuekwe has warned that Saturday’s Confederation Cup tie against Dedebit SC of Ethiopia will be tough and urged the fans to come out in thousands to cheer them to victory.

The Super Eagles defender revealed that Dedebit,  who play their matches in Bahir Dar Stadium, about 700km, North of Addis Ababa, had about 42,000 fans for their last match, thus they have to finish the work in Warri, else they will have themselves to blame.

Egwuekwe affirmed that fans can win the match for them by cheering them ceaselessly because Dedebit parade several internationals, so Wolves need to double their efforts to scale through.

“We are aware of the herculean task ahead because Dedebit are not a small team. About 42,000 fans were present in their last match so we want our fans to come out in thousands to cheer us to victory,” he said.

“They parade national team players, about seven, so we just have to work hard to see that we do well in the first leg because the second leg will be difficult.”
