Sierra Leone will be desperate for victory when they battle Sao Tome and Principe in matchday four of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at the Stade d’Agadir this afternoon.

A match that cannot be oversized that only a win will keep coach John Keister’s side alive in the race to Ivory Coast next year.

After a 2-2 draw against their Central African counterpart on Wednesday, the Leone Stars now with another chance to rectify and get their Afcon campaign on track.

Two changes are expected from the squad that played to a 2-all draw on Wednesday as midfielder John Kamara suspended Bo Rangers striker Musa Noah Kamara could be dropped to the bench.

Leone Stars skipper Steven Caulker has apologised for the draw and promised they’ll get it right today. Today’s contest will be the sixth meeting between the two nations.

“I was above the night drinking and recapping on the small areas which we can improve defensively and attacking wise. We have some few chances, yes, it was painful,” the Wigan Athletic defender noted. 

He continued: “We know what we need to do. We’re prepared to go to war on Sunday because we need the three points. We know the situation we are in.”

A win for Sao Tome and Principe will see them move above Sierra Leone. 

Meanwhile, Group A leaders Guinea-Bissau look set to keep their unbeaten record in the qualifying race when they host Nigeria on Monday at home.

After a super-away 1-0 win at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja, Guinea-Bissua comfortably topped the group ahead of hosting Nigeria.
