Buildcon coach Tenant Chembo has taken some positives from Sundays’ pre-season friendly win over DR Congo side Eagles Joli-Site Academie before their crucial 2019/2020CAF Confederation Cup final leg date away to Young Buffaloes of eSwatini.
The Ndola club, who are making their continental debut this season, beat their DR Congo guests 2-1 in Ndola in what was also their final training game before packing their bag for eSwatini at the end of this week.
But Buildcon head into their preliminary round, final leg tie with an uphill battle awaiting them in Manzini this weekend after losing 1-0 at home to Young Buffaloes on August 10 in Ndola.
“It was a very good team, they gave us a good run but the beauty about it is we had our chances and utilized them because we set a target,” Chembo said.
“And if we can achieve this, and carry it into the weekend game, that will be better.”
A 1-0 away win for Buildcon will see the tie decided on post-match penalties while a 2-0 victory will see them through to the first round where they will face Bidvest Wits of South Africa who enjoyed a preliminary stage bye.
