“Lukman is an important member of the team and he is fit for the game on Sunday.

“I don’t know who will play yet on Sunday as all the players have been training excellently and everyone is fit.

“Getting a draw in the first leg does not mean this tie is over.

“AS Real Bamako is a very good side, technically with young and mobile players as we experienced first-hand last weekend,” he said. 

Sunday’s game will be played at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium, Port Harcourt after the two sides battled to a 0-0 stalemate in the first leg at the Stade Modibo Kéïta, Bamako on February 11.
