Horoya boss wants early goals


HOROYA deputy president Dominique Traore says scoring early in tomorrow’s CAF Champions League first round second leg against Zesco United will go a long way in enhancing his team’s chances of overturning the 4-1 away defeat.
And Zesco arrived in Conakry yesterday after spending a night in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
“History records that Hafia FC achieved the feat against ASEC Abidjan.
The times are not the same, so you have to completely get out of pessimism. True, the team sank in Zambia but scoring early enough, the trend may change,” Traore told the club website.
Guinean side Hafia beat ASEC Mimosas of Ivory Coast 5-0 in the return leg in Conakry after losing 3-0 in the first leg in Bouake during the 1976 Africa Cup of Champions Club second semi-final.
Traore said in football anything is possible and with the right mentality, the team could score three unanswered goals and progress to the second round-up.
And Zesco stand-in coach Tenant Chembo is not under pressure to guide the team to the CAF Champions League second round.
Chembo will be at the helm of the Ndola side because his boss, George Lwandamina, remained home to drill the national team ahead of next Wednesday’s 2017 Gabon Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Congo- Brazzaville.
