CAF Confederation Cup: SuperSport United vs AFC Leopards

Written By Themba Khumalo on Friday, February 28, 2014 | Friday, February 28, 2014

SuperSport United welcome Kenyan side, AFC Leopards in the first round of the CAF Confederation Cup on Saturday evening at the Lucas Moripe stadium. Kick-off is set for 20h15.

Matsatsantsa overcame Botswana side Gaborone United 3-0 on aggregate in their previous CAF Confederation Cup encounter and will look to replicate that performance in the first round match-up against a formidable Leopards side that went passed Ethiopian outfit, Defense SC 4-1 on aggregate.

Ingwe are currently eleventh in the Kenyan Premier League table going into the third round of fixtures.
Cavin Johnson's side will be boosted with the timely return of key defenders, Thabo September and Sibusiso Khumalo who both missed the trip to Gaborone due to injury.

Cavin Johnson: "The personality is when you are playing at home (Lucas Moripe Stadium), that's when we need to be at our very best. It's a big stage for us and we have to come to the party and showcase what we can do. Leopards is a formidable side and are well known for producing some of Kenya's best talent. We are well aware of what they can do and we have planned accordingly for them. This stage is where we will be tested-you can either play or you can't.  Some of the players have to prove that they have got that character to be able to play against the best in Africa. We want to progress to the next stage and have made our intentions very clear to everyone."

Bevan Fransman: "We are ready for this encounter and have prepared ourselves well to be here. All we need is to ensure that we get a favorable result on Saturday night and ensure that we have something to play for when we travel to Kenya. We did well in our last game and we have every intention to carry on with that same mindset."
