Confed Cup: Nasarawa in another Slim Home Win

Nigeria’s Nasarawa United is again walking a tight rope in the CAF Confederation Cup after the ‘Solid Miners’ could only manage a 1-0 home win over CS Constantine of Algeria in a first round, first leg match in Abuja yesterday.

Philip Azango left it late till the 86th minute to grab the match winner for Nasarawa United.

Tactically disciplined Constantine played with a man short as from the 55th minute, when Hamza Boulemdias was sent off.

Nasarawa also had to overcome a narrow 2-1 win over Generation Foot of Senegal in the preliminary round to reach this stage of the competition.

The return leg match will be played in Algeria on Friday.
