Enyimba striker, Oluwadamilare Ojo said Enyimba will bank on their experience to shock Bidvest in front of their fans.

“Nigerian teams always have an edge over South African teams even at the national team level,” began 24-year-old Ojo who incidentally scored with a rocket-like shot in Enyimba 2-1 loss to Mamelodi Sundowns in the mini-league stage of the 2016 CAF Champions League.

“Though South Africans usually play tactically, we play physical game and that is the key if we are going to overcome Bidvest. I recognised the fact that they are called Clever Boys but we are also called the Elephants and you know what elephants do; we can certainly crush  Bidvest,” noted Ojo.

“It’s true Enyimba has not won the CAF Confederation Cup but we are determined more than ever and I believe with the calibre of players in our team we can go all the way.

“With all modesty, I think Enyimba has the best collection of experienced players in the  NPFL( Nigeria Professional Football League) and that’s why it would be hard for me to pick one player as the joker against Bidvest.

game to Bidvest,” Ojo stated.
