Kamboi Eagles coach Alhaji Foray has put his side’s 2-0 Caf Cup first-leg defeat to ASO Chlef of Algeria down to a lack of experience.
Foray (alias Abedi) watched his side succumb to a goal in each half despite a numeric advantage for almost an hour after Chlef’s captain Samir Zoaui was sent off in the 45ft minutes for dangerous play.
“Our tactical indiscipline in the field of play coupled with the inexperience of some of my players as factors that let my team down even with a man advantage for almost an hour,” Foray said.
“The match is now a learning theatre hence will be a useful tool to help fine tune our subsequent performance hosting ASO Chlef.
“We expected to give them a better game; I want the fans and the people of Sierra Leone to have faith.”
Coach Abedi believes they have an outside chance to make the next round, but maintained is still wide open if they can get the first goal in the return leg.
“It’s theirs to lose, it’s in their hands. For us is going take an added motivation and nothing is impossible in football.”
The return fixture is now slated for Friday February 20, instead of 29, 2015 after a bilateral meeting concluded between the two club’s officials.
