The Aba side were dumped out the lucrative club competition in the first round by Egyptian side, Smouha SC almost two weeks ago and activities have been at the lowest ebb at the club because the way they were allegedly controversially eliminated.

Ikhana in a chat with Goal said that Enyimba will start picking up the pieces after their elimination with the top the table clash with Kano Pillars this weekend in Kano where they will strive to get a positive result for the first in three seasons.

“We are about forgetting our ouster from the Caf even though we saw coming that would be difficult to qualify, based on the experience we had with the officiating. We ought to have closed up the tie in Aba but with only a goal advantage to Alexandria would always be hard. We have learnt our lesson and life must go on,” Ikhana told Goal.
