Austine, Nweke to miss Club Africain test

Rivers United captain, Festus Austine and fellow defender, Ifeanyi Nweke will both miss Sunday’s Caf Confederation Cup against Tunisian side, Club Africain.

Austine is suspended after an accumulation of cards while Nweke will miss out on the clash for a similar reason.

The right back was shown a straight red card in United’s second leg, playoff round tie against Rwandan club, Rayon Sports.

In the absence of the duo, technical manager of Rivers United, Stanley Eguma will now have to reshuffle his backline against extremely difficult opposition.

“It is difficult knowing we have to prosecute this game without very experienced defenders.

“Our captain, especially is very important to this team but we have to make do without their services.

“Complaining will not solve anything so we just have to readjust and see what we can do on Sunday,” he told supersport.com.

The game between Club Africain and Rivers United on Sunday will hold at the Stade Olympique de Radès, Radès and will kick off at 6pm.
