Rwanda's Amavubi Stars Coach Milutin 'Micho' Sredojovic is targeting a score draw against the Super Eagles in Saturday's 2013 African Cup of Nations qualifier in Calabar.

With the first leg held some months back in Kigaliending in a barren draw, the Rwandans are perfecting plans to shock the Nigerian team at the U.J Esuene Stadium this weekend.

Sredojovic told the New Times of Rwanda that he has confidence in his team's ability to score against the Eagles.

While acknowledging that his team still have some work to do before the Nigerian match, the Serb tactician said that the pressure was on the Eagles to win in front of their home fans.

"It is going to be very tough match because the road ends for the losing team on Saturday but I believe that we can play a scoring draw in Nigeria. The Nigerians are going to be under pressure from their fans and I hope that we can capitalise on this", said Sredojovic.

In their last match, the Rwandans played a 1-1 draw by Beninin a group H 2014 World Cup qualifier on Sunday.

Sredojovic says that his charges must improve their performance to stand any chance of hurting the Eagles.

The winner of the match progress to the next round of the ANC scheduled to hold in South Africa in 2013.
