Rivers United’s Festus satisfied with win over Rayon Sports

The 28-year-old has praised the tenacity of the Peace Boys as they forced the Pride of Rivers to share the spoils

Austin Festus has stated that Rivers United are satisfied with their 2-0 home win over Rayon Sports in the first leg of their Caf Confederation Cup playoff  tie in Port Harcourt on Sunday.

He said there won’t be a repeat of the last month collapse in Omdurman against Al Merreikh as they hope to put up a good display in Kigali which will earn them a place in the group stage.

“We are happy with the 2-0 advantage and we are sure there won’t a repeat of what happened in Sudan,'' Festus told Goal.

We have learnt our lessons from what transpired there and have put it behind us. They (Rayon Sports) came all out to neutralize our tactics but we proved to be superior and I do not see them beating us in the return leg.''
