ZAMBIAN CAF Confederation Cup envoys Buildcon are confident of over-turning the 1-0 deficit in eSwatini when they clash against Young Buffaloes tomorrow.

In an interview before departure for eSwatini, Buildcon coach Tenant Chembo said the team had done its homework to make sure they beat Buffaloes in the second leg to move to the next stage of the competition.

Chembo said tomorrow’s clash was a must-win which makes it a big task, but is something the team can attain.

“We are a confident team because we know what we can do. We went through the paces and we know where we went wrong. We have to go and play for a win and we are ready for that,” he said.

He said the mental strength would be vital to beat a home side.

He said the team will have to close paces to stop them from going forward.

“I may make two to three changes to the starting line-up to give the team that,” he said.

Meanwhile, Green Mamba coach Caleb Ngwenya said the team had the depth to beat Zesco United 3-0 in tomorrow’s CAF Champions League preliminary round return leg.

Zesco carries a 2-0 advantage from the first leg. Speaking on arrival in Ndola yesterday, Ngwenya said his team would be the first Southern African club to hand Zesco defeat.

“Zesco manged to win away, so we can do the same as well. I know how tough but these challenges you face in football are, and I know it’s possible to win by a 3-0 margin. We worked on our weaknesses, we have worked very hard for this game,” he said.

 He admitted that his team was less experienced compared to Zesco as they are debutantes in the competition.
