Leopards won't blink in Owerri



Former Saint Michel d'Ouenzé midfielder, Sam Ledor, has warned Nigerian side, Heartland not to underrate their Caf Confederation Cup opponents, AC Leopard Dolisie.

The Congolese are yet to lose on the road in two back-to-back Caf Confederation Cup matches this term.

Against all expectations, Leopards lost 1-2 at home in the last round to Tunisian powerhouse and two-time Caf Confederation Cup champions, Club Sportif Sfaxien, but won 2-0 in Sfax to earn the ticket to face Heartland.

Eric Nyamba's brace stunned the home fans and Leopard qualified on 3-2 aggregate.

"Leopard play fast football and have a good team.

"They have good foreigners in the team, who are from neighbouring African countries. Some of their players are also in the national team," Ledor , who is on a short-term deal with Sharks in the Nigeria Premier League, said to SuperSport.com.

The former Rangers and Enyimba star revealed that the club made an approach for him when he was on the roster of their Brazzaville rivals, Saint Michel d'Ouenzé

"I was already heading for Etoile du Sahel when they approached me," he told SuperSport.com.
