SOCCER  –  LOCAL CAF Confederation Cup envoy Young Buffaloes will on Sunday leave the country for South Africa to face Cape Town City in the preliminary round return leg encounter slated for next Tuesday evening at the Athlone Stadium. 

The army side travel to Cape Town by road to do battle with the Citizens, who handed them 0-1 drubbing last Saturday at the Somhlolo National Stadium.

The team’s Chief Executive Officer Sandile Gwebu confirmed the travelling logistics when asked after the match.

“We will be going to Cape Town on Sunday to play the return leg and the match will be played on Tuesday evening at the Athlone Stadium. We will announce other details in due course.”

He said they would prepare well for the second leg.

“It is unfortunate we lost here at home and we now have to double the effort to make it through to the next round of the tournament.” 

The return leg will be officiated by Mauritius referees in Dharamveer Hurbungs, Ram Babajee and Sailesh Gobin as per the list released by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) yesterday.   

‘Amathole Ezinyathi’ will have to win 2-0 in order to advance to the first round of the competition where they will face the winner between Botswana’s Jwaneng Galaxy and Costa Do Sol of Mozambique.
