Nigeria’s Rivers United bank on home win to bounce back

Rivers United coach Stanley Eguma says his team hope to beat FUS Rabat of Moroccotomorrow at home to get their Confederation Cup hopes back on course.

The Moroccans lead Group A after they beat Kampala City Council of Uganda and Rivers United fell 3-1 at Club Africain of Tunisia.

Eguma said a win on Wednesday will be key in their Confederation Cup quest.

The Nigerian flag bearers will be boosted with the return from suspension of inspirational skipper Festus Austine.

Burkina Faso midfielder Alisou Sanou is recovering from illness, but rightback Ifeanyi Nweke is still suspended after his dismissal at Rayon Sports of Rwanda in the final playoffs.
