KELVIN Bulaji has recovered from a muscle strain ahead of the Ngezi Platinum crucial CAF Confederation Cup first round, second leg tie at National Sports Stadium on Saturday.
They face Clube Recreativo Desportivo do Libolo of Angola with hope of overturning a 2-1 defeat suffered in the reverse fixture.
Bulaji, who was the target man in the preliminary round, missed the first leg in Angola.
“Byron is out but Bulaji is back and that is very important for us ahead of this game. Everyone else is available for selection,” said Ngezi coach Tonderai Ndiraya.
This week Ngezi Platinum players that spoke to H-Metro have indicated that they have a chance to get a result against Libolo.
They pointed out how they failed to defend set pieces in a match they also felt robbed after a late effort was ruled out for off side.
On Saturday Ndiraya will have several options on the table.
He could go for a tight defence and hope to score a goal that will see them through to the next round.
The young coach could decide to take the game to his opponents and aim for a win with a two goal margin.
Libolo arrived in the country on Wednesday evening ahead of the massive clash.
