Sellas Tetteh, 58, and his Sierra Leone side are in danger of crashing out of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.
After losing to Les Sao 1-0 on Saturday, they will be looking for a return to form against their Central African opposition on Tuesday when they host Chad in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification return fixture.
The Ghanaian technician, who is yet to inspire Leone Stars to victory since taking charge in August will be desperate to overturn the shocking first leg result against a side ranked 54 places below Sierra Leone in the global rankings.
The Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in the Nigerian city of Port Harcourt will host the contest.
During the 2015 Nations Cup qualifiers, Leone Stars failed to win a single match; they will need two or more goals without any reply from their visitors.
Meanwhile, Chad with the advantage are coming into this contest highly confident, knowing an early goal away from home or another clean sheet will make it much more difficult for their host.
Both teams are still in contention to face the seven-time African Champions Egypt next month in the final qualifying round to make the 2018 World Cup qualification group stage.
