Akwa United arrive Sudan for Caf Confederation Cup clash versus Al-Hilal

After securing an away draw in Enugu, the excited Promise Keepers forward is already looking forward to mid-week clash with the Borno Army

Akwa United arrived in Sudan on Thursday for their Caf Confederation Cup group stage playoff first leg clash with Al-Hilal on Sunday.

A 19-man squad were led by coach Abdu Maikaba out of Lagos on Wednesday afternoon as they are hopeful of securing play-off spot in the Caf inter-club competition.

The Promise Keepers had edged past Hawks of Gambia and Al-Ittihad of Libya in the first and second round of the competition to reach this stage. 

Before their trip, first-half strikes from Martins Usule and Destiny Ashadi saw the Uyo-based side suffered their fourth league defeat this season at Katsina United.

Despite their recent slip, Maikaba's side would aim to put up a good display enough to secure a positive first-leg advantage at the Al-Hilal Stadium on Sunday.
