Five players who can lift Enyimba against Pirates

Enyimba find themselves in a must-win situation when they take on the Orlando Pirates in a crucial CAF Confederation Cup match at the Enyimba International Stadium on Wednesday night. Kickoff is 10pm.

Anything short of victory will send the two-time Champions League winners out of the CAF Confederation Cup.

Here are the five players who will be key for Enyimba as they look to claim the three points on offer:

John Noble: Fatai Osho will go with continuity by choosing John Noble between the sticks as he has featured in all five group matches for Enyimba so far. He has become the club's number one, ahead of Olufemi Kayode.

Abiodun Adebayo: Abiodun Adebayo has set high standards for himself over the past few seasons‚ but he has been inconsistent this term. A lot will be expected from him.

Cyril Olisema: Osho will be hoping that Olisema steps up in the absence of suspended Augustine Oladapo on Wednesday. Olisema will be tasked with the daunting job of initiating most of the attacks from midfield.

Anayo Iwuala: If Enyimba really want to win this game, then Anayo Iwuala must be actively involved in the thick of things. The winger will surely relish the occasion. He should be the game changer for Enyimba.

Tosin Omoyele: The forward has impressed for the People's Elephants this season where he has been used as a No 8‚ a false No 9 or as an outright striker. A lot will be expected from him.
