Former Super Eagles midfielder, Edema Fuludu said that with a little bit of push, Warri Wolves are capable of pipping Enyimba of Aba to the Federations Cup billed for September 15 at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.

Warri Wolves are gunning for the Federation Cup title to land their first ever silverware, but they have a formidable opponent in Enyimba who are twice champions of the Federation Cup in 2005 and 2009.

Enyimba has also won the CAF Champions League trophy twice, in 2003 and 2004.

Enymiba, are aiming to make history as the first club to win the trophy for the third time since it was rechristened Federation Cup in 2009.

Fuludu, in a telephone interview with NAN, urged Wolves players to be resilient in their approach during their final match against Enyimba on Sunday.

“Congratulations to Warri Wolves for making it this far, for the first time; their match against Enyimba is not going to be a walk in the park.

“Enyimba cannot be underrated, but it will also be at their risk if they think Warri Wolves are going to come easy at them. The team with adequate motivation will carry the day.

“Both teams have played together a number of times and each time they met, it was always tough.

“Warri Wolves players need all the motivation they can muster now,” he added.

The management of the Wolves has provided 20 luxury buses to convey fans to Lagos to cheer the team to victory during the match.

Hosts Wolves qualified for the Federation Cup final by beating Gombe United 1-0 at the Warri City Stadium.

Enyimba’s late three-goal rush saw them beating Lobi Stars 3-0 at the Aba International Stadium, to also qualify for the final on Sunday.
