Confederation Cup: Warri Wolves zoom into second round

One of Nigeria’s flag-bearers in this year’s edition of the Orange/CAF Confederation Cup, Warri Wolves, has booked a place in the second round.

Playing inside the Warri City Stadium, Delta State, the Nigerian side defeated hard fighting FC Kallon of Sierra Leone by two goals to nothing to make it a 2-0 aggregate win.
The first leg match between the two sides ended goalless in Freetown a fortnight ago.
Heavy downpour marred the encounter that saw Warri Wolves playing below expectation in the first stanza.
Striker, Gift Atulewa, broke the deadlock when he converted a spot kick awarded Wolves in the 52nd minute of play.
FC Kallon’s goalkeeper, Caulker, had brought down Atulewa in the vital area and the referee wasted no time in awarding the spot kick.
‎Okoyoh Micheal’s strike in the 86th minute sealed the victory for the Wolves when he sloted the ball in the net after Aneke missed scoring.
