CAF Confed Cup: Enyimba in Flying Start against Djoliba


Isiaka Oladuntoye yesterday fired Enyimba to a perfect start in the CAF Confederation Cup group stage as the Peoples Elephant defeat Djoliba of Mali 2-0 at the U.J. Esuene Stadium in Calabar.

Oladuntoye got the opener three minutes after the first half break with a thumping shot following a corner kick.

Enyimba dominated the first half but had no score to show for the effort- no thanks to Djoliba goalkeeper Adama Keita who was in excellent form.

Djoliba made spirited efforts to get back into the game after Oladuntoye’s goal but were unable to find a way past the Enyimba defence.

Enyimba however consolidated  when they were awarded a penalty 10 minutes to the end of the game when substitute Freedom Omofowan was tripped inside the box.

Another substitute, Stanley Dimgba, converted the penalty to take the game beyond the reach of the Malians.

Paul Aigbogun’s men next game is against CARA Brazzaville of Congo on May 15.
