Enugu Rangers are through to the group stage of the CAF Confederation Cup following a slim 1-0 win against Togolese champions AS KARA in their second leg, playoff round tie at the Nnamdi Azikwe Stadium, Enugu on Sunday.
The Flying Antelopes secured their passage on away goal rule having lost the first leg 2–1 in Lome last weekend.
Chinonso Eziekwe netted the decisive strike for Rangers in the 17th minute of the keenly contested encounter.
Benedict Ugwu’s side wasted a number of clear cut chances in the game and endured a nervy end as the Togolese battled to find the equalising goal.
The Coal City club joined Enyimba who defeated South African club TS Galaxy 4-1 on aggregate in the group stage of Africa’s second tier club competition.
No Nigerian club has won the Confederation Cup title in the past.
