Nyasa Big Bullets Coach, Kallisto Pasuwa says his charges will go to attack to score goals as they seek the much needed win in CAF Champions League after losing the first leg of the competition by a goal to nil.
He said this at a press conference held at Kamuzu Stadium yesterday in the afternoon ahead of today’s, Wednesday, 5 December, 2018, second leg game which will see the overall winner progress to the next round of the competition.
He said to win the game his charges have to be positive, and they have to go in numbers in the box in order to score goals.
“Obviously we need to be offensive. We have to fare well in duels; we need to be above everybody else on the field of play. That’s the mind that wins a game.
“So we need to be positive in whatever we are going to do tomorrow. The approach of the game is not sitting back, we need to go forward, we need people in the box, and we need numbers in the box for us to score the goals,” he explained at the presser.
The team’s board has promised to give the players K8million Kwacha, which will see each player pocketing K400, 000, only if they win and progress to the next round.
Meanwhile, Gor Mahia interim Coach, Zedekiah “Zico” Otieno, who switched from an assistant role after the resignation of Dylan Kerr before the first leg game, also took time to speak to the media at Kamuzu Stadium yesterday, where he said his team is prepared, and expecting Bullets to attack.
“I think we are prepared as you know Gor Mahia is a big team and we are coming here to get a good result after we won one zero. The pressure will not be on us, it will be on the home team because definitely they will try to come out and beat us. Playing at home they were too defensive and maybe that’s why we only managed to score one goal, and this time around I think they will try to come and attack us,” he explained.
“When they come to attack us definitely they will leave spaces behind. I hope they will come and attack us because they need to win they need to have a goal, so that way definitely we’ll try and utilise the spaces they leave behind and hopefully we’ll score. We have been in this situation before; we played against Supersport in the other edition. We won one zero, we went to their place they won 2-1 and we advanced so it’s not different,” Otieno added.
The game will be played at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre, and will kickoff at 2:30 pm.
