THE Pensioners host Coton Sport of Cameroon this afternoon for their Group B Group Stage match of the CAF Confederation Cup competition.
This is a must win match for NAPSA Stars if they need to keep their hopes of qualifying to the next stage alive.
The Mohamed Fathi coached side is coming from a 2all draw against Algerian side JS Kabylie, and a loss from Moroccan side RS Berkane.
