Buffaloes search for 5 goalsBy Mazuba Muleya on 20 Feb 2018
GREEN Buffaloes today need to score five unanswered goals against Egyptian side Al Masry to maintain their aspirations of progressing in the CAF Confederation Cup competition.
The Zambia Army-sponsored side needs to produce the biggest upset at Nkoloma Stadium to overturn the 4-0 loss they suffered at the hands of Al Masry in Port Said last Saturday.
Coach Bilton Musonda has refused to give up the chase saying football is dynamic and the Army side should not be written off based on the first leg result.
“We have worked on the mistakes that cost us in Egypt and I believe the players know what is at stake. We are ready for the game and we will not be demoralized. We will just play our game. We lost yes, but we should not be written off,” he said.
Musonda’s defence was porous in the first leg and believes he has done his best to seal all the loopholes as the soldiers credibility remains threatened.
New recruit Youremember Banda who seemed tensed up in the first leg will need to up his game or face the chopping board as Musonda may return his faith in Jack Chirwa.
The midfield is expected to be anchored by veteran Felix Katongo while goalkeeper Fred Silwimba who served his side from further embarrassment in the first leg is likely to be maintained.
“We will not dwell on the first leg. That game is gone and this is a new game. We will remain focused,” Musonda said.
For Al Masry, today’s game is as good as a formality having secured a comfortable lead in the first round.
The Port Said based team coached by former Pharoahs winger Hassan Hossam will be aiming at consolidating their lead.
With the likes of Burkina Faso striker Astride Bance, Hossam is set to progr3ess to the next round of the competition.Related Items
