SOCCER - ALGERIAN side JS Kabylie will arrive today for their Total CAF Confederation’s Cup clash against local envoys Royal Leopard. This was announced by Leopard Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Frank Hurube, who said JS Kabylie would arrive through the King Mswati International Airport in a chattered flight.
“I have been communicating with the team and I can confirm that they will arrive tomorrow (today),” he said. Hurube said 2 000 tickets would be made available for the clash as they have written a letter to the Eswatini Football Association (EFA) for approval with the Confederation of African Football (CAF).
“We are still waiting for a way forward from EFA with regards the tickets,” he said. Released In a notice released on October 31, CAF permitted supporters in its competitions. The police side will take on the visitors in the first leg encounter to be held at Mavuso Sports Centre on Sunday before travelling to Algiers a week later.
The MTN League defending champions will be seeking redemption in the continent following the exit in the Champions League at the hands of Angolan side Sagrada Esparangas. Meanwhile, Leopard will be without the services of striker Barry Steenkamp and midfielder Menzi Sithole.
“We will be without Barry and Sithole in this match because they are not registered for the CAF games. Recalled “We have just recalled them from their loan with Vovovo and Mbabane Swallows, respectively, so they did not register for the CAF games.
We will do with the other players we have in the team,” he said. The duo re-joined the team before the registration window closed last Friday. After a successful start in the CAF Cup, with a qualification in the last round of the continental competition at the expense of the Moroccans of the FA Rabat, JS Kabylie find themselves confronted with a crisis of results in the championship of Ligue 1.
In four games played, they have not tasted victory, settling for four draws in a row. Meanwhile, Leopard, on the other hand, have maintained a perfect start to their title defence, winning all four of the opening games in the new season.
