Former Nigeria international and coach, Christian Chukwu is confident that Enugu Rangers will advance from the group stages of the CAF Confederation Cup despite losing their first two matches.
The Legendary skipper, who serves as a top official at the club, believes the Flying Antelopes can still progress from the group regardless of the poor start.
Rangers fell to a 3-1 defeat at home to Pyramids before losing 4-2 away to Egyptian club Al Masry in their second Group A game last Sunday.
“I’m happy that it’s a group stage, it’s no more knockout stage and I believe we will bounce back,” Chukwu said on Brila FM as quoted by CSN.
“I believe Rangers will bounce back to what they use to be.”
The club has lost its first two group matches and will travel away to for their matchday 3 fixture.
It also has not been the best of starts for the club in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) as they have won just one of their five games, losing three and drawing one.
With the domestic league already in week 7, Rangers have two games in hand following their involvement at the continental competition.
Rangers are in 19th position in the 20-team table, with four points.
