Abuja-Warri Wolves Football Club on Saturday pipped hosts Racing Club de Bobo-Dioulasso (RCB) of Burkina Faso in the first leg match of the preliminary round of the 2015 Confederation Cup.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the match saw substitute Abu Azeez scoring the lone goal.
This means Warri Wolves have a foot in the next round after the attacking midfielder came off the bench to net the only goal of the keenly-contested encounter.
Azeez punished the hosts when he found enough space to score in the 84th minute off a corner kick by Ikechukwu Ibenegbu who delivered a well-tailored ball.
Azeez had added bite to the attack of the visitors after replacing Okafor Onyekachi in the 75th minute.
Match referee Ibrahim Mamane from Niger Republic had earlier dissallowed a goal netted by Ibenegbu.
The result ensured that Wolves made an impressive start to their 2015 CAF Confederation Cup campaign.(NAN)
