HOW Mine are fully focused on putting in a top-notch performance in their second round CAF Confederations Cup fixture against Bayelsa United.

The Bulawayo-based outfit suffered a shock 3-1 loss to Seychelles side St Michael last time out, but still managed to qualify for the second round with a 6-4 aggregate win.

How Mine now face a dominant Nigerian Premier League side in Bayelsa, who are fresh off a 2-0 win over Congolese side Kondzo.

Coach Philani Ncube is under no illusion that this will be a testing tie, but believes his players will rise to the occasion.

"Obviously the Nigerian team would be tough for us. We are bracing to reach the group stages. We lost in Seychelles and that is a lesson to correct in future matches, coach Philani Ncube said.

"Our aim to win at home and at least draw in Nigeria to ensure passage to the next round. As I said it will be tough but we will try to win. Our target right now is beating the Nigerian team," he added.

The Nigerian side will travel to Zimbabwe on March 23 for the first leg and a week later host How Mine in the return fixture in Yenegoa.
