Enyimba vice-captain Ifeanyi Anaemena is looking forward to their 2018 CAF Confederation Cup quarter-final second leg clash with Rwanda's Rayon Sports.

The Nigerian giants are scheduled to host Rayon at the Enyimba International Stadium in Aba on Sunday.

Anaemena is happy that Enyimba are back in Aba after more than three years of using grounds in Calabar, Umuahia and Port Harcourt.

The defender believes that the 12th man is key in driving them to ambitious heights in Africa’s second tier club competition.

“Having the chance to play in front of our fans for the first time in a few years is good," Anaemena told NPFL's official website.

"Remember some of the players are playing at the (Enyimba) stadium for the first time and now they understand how passionate the fans are, and why we need to always win matches as much as we can.

“Playing in front our supporters again is good for us. You saw the effect of that in the last game (at home against CARA Brazzaville), so we are looking to our supporters to back us when we play on Sunday."

The winner between Enyimba and Rayon will take on either Moroccan giants Raja Casablanca or Congo-Brazzaville's CARA Brazzaville in the semi-finals.
