Cape Town - Sifiso Hlanti says Bidvest Wits go to Nigeria knowing what to expect against Enyimba, who were a closed book in the first leg of their CAF Confederations Cup play-off match.

The two teams drew 1-1 at the Bidvest Stadium a week ago, and meet again on Wednesday.

While Hlanti admitted that his team have made life difficult for themselves by failing to win the first leg at home, he feels they are better prepapred going into Wednesday's second-leg in Nigeria.

"I think the one advantage that we have since we played them in the first leg is that we now know their style of play,” Hlanti exclusively told Vodacom Soccer.

"They are no longer a closed book to us and we have also spotted their weak points.

"That’s the most important thing at the moment, but to go and play away, we know very well it’s not an easy thing especially when it comes to continental competitions.

"But we can still make it because at the end of day it’s up to us as the players to do the job for the team."
