22 year old center back,OrianJores and 18 year old Goalkeeper, Patrick Kibyen Leonel will not play a role on the pitch in this sunday’s do or die CAF Confederation cup game pitting New Stars to visiting Gor Mahia of Kenya.
Gor Mahia came into the return game holding a 2-1 lead in the tie.
With the honours on New Stars to come out and push extra hard to finally get their goal in Limbe and why not prevent Gor Mahia from scoring.
Next Sunday’s fixtures will be played without Orian Jores who picked up another yellow card in Nairobi just like Wonderkid,Kibyen Leonel who were all on a booking before kick off in Nairobi.
Patrick Kibyen made 7 saves in their last home game in the Confederation cup against Al Ahly and picked up a booking added to the one he was brandished in Nairobi he will have to watch former Bamboutos FC goalkeeper, Arnaud Fotso do the job of a last line at the back.
Lane Lane was also taken off due to an injury with 25 minutes left in the game against Gor Mahia but his recovery is still being monitored.
Should Lane fail to recover on time, New Stars will badly miss this trio. But there is some positive News.The fact that,vice captain, Aristide Medjo who missed the game in Nairobi will be available for selection is a huge boast.
A better aggregate goal scored team in this tie gets a place in the group stage of the 2018/2019 CAF Confederation cup.
