No one predicted it but Black Leopards are in it to win it. The CAF Cnfederation cup is in its round of 16 stage and Lidoda Duvha are still candidates in the African tournament.
They will take on Warri Wolves Football Club on their next travelling journey to Africa. Warri Wolves FC (formerly called NPA FC) is a Nigerian soccer club formerly run by the Nigeria Port Authority and were based in Warri, Delta State prior to 2003, but moved to Lagos after promotion to the Nigerian Premier League in 2003.
The team was renamed "Warri Wolves" at the start of the 2007 season and won promotion to the 2009 Premier League Season as champions of Division 1B. Wolves finished with 59 points from 18 wins, five draws and seven losses, scoring 42 goals and conceded 16.
The Nigerian side has had only 2 appearances in the CAF Confederations in the year 2010 where they were knocked out in the round of 16 stages and of present have made it to the similar stage.
They will be looking to better that record with a win against Leopards as they will be playing at home for the first leg encounter.
Warri Wolves defeated Kallon 2-0 to progress to the next stage and are 7th on their Premiere League table/log. This will not be an easy battle for Leopards but again it hasn’t been an easy run from the beginning. Leopards will travel to Nigeria to play Wolves on the 27 April 2012.
