Bandari midfielder Danson Chetambe believes a lightning-quick start in their return leg clash of the CAF Confederations Cup playoff duel with Guinean side Horoya will be key to their hopes of reaching the group stages.
Bernard Mwalala's side put up a spirited show in Conakry five days ago before ultimately losing the first leg 4-2.
Chetambe, who came on as a second-half substitute was of the opinion that an early goal would change the complexion of the game and put the Guineans on the back foot.
“In the return leg, I believe if we rectify our undoing in the first leg then we are going to overturn this result because nothing is impossible in football,” he said
“The two away goals we scored are vital for us. We are determined to build on from that,” added the former Zoo Kericho playmaker.
Assistant coach Ibrahim Shikanda had pointed out to Horoya's experience at the continental stage as the bigger advantage they held over the dockers and Chetambe concurred.
Bandari are making their second appearance on the continental front but have shown they can go toe-to-toe with superior sides after eliminating Al Ahly Shendy and US Ben Guerdane. In their first-ever appearance in the continental cup, Bandari were eliminated in the preliminary stage 3-1 on aggregate by Congolese side St.Eloi Lupopo.
“Assessing them (Horoya), they are a team that can be beaten when well organised. However, as they showed in their home match, they are good too with their experience in the competition so it was great that we managed to score two away goals which I believe will be crucial to the outcome of this tie,” finished Chetambe.
Star striker Aristide Bance, scorer of a hat trick in the first leg will lead his teammates to Nairobi later today. The Guineans will tomorrow have a feel of the Kasarani Stadium, the venue of the match.
The Guinean champions, nicknamed 'Red and white' were due in Nairobi yesterday.
