Dolphins FC of Port Harcourt manager, Stanley Eguma, says the team is prepared to play in the CAF Champions League.
Dolphins will play their first match at away, against a club from Equatorial Guinea later this month.
Eguma told sportswriters in Port Harcourt shortly after his team defeated league leaders, Gombe United, 2-1 in Sunday’s Premier League match, that “I am optimistic of a good outing in the CAF Champions League.
“My players will continue to improve as the league progresses. We are also sure of a good outing in the CAF Champions' League.
“We are satisfied with the outcome of the match against Gombe United. It was a good match,” he said.
Dolphins’ Adamu Mohammed shot his side into the lead in the 37th minute while old timer, Alhaji Kwaranga, equalised for Gombe in the 42nd minute.
Saidu Abu of Dolphins scored the second goal for his side in the 57th minute.
Gombe manager, Bernard Ogbe, said he was disappointed at the failure of his team to take something away from the game.
“We will go back to the drawing board and correct areas of mistake. We played against a good side,’’ he said.
