Rivers United coach Stanley Eguma says his side will be seeking a ‘resounding victory’ against Futuro Kings of Equatorial Guinea in Sunday’s CAF Confederation Cup second leg preliminary round tie in Port Harcourt.
After missing a plethora of scoring chances to bury the game in the first leg a week ago in Mongomo, The Pride of Rivers were handed a surprise 2-1 defeat by the minnows, who were formed only three years ago.
Eguma said he has worked tirelessly to correct his side’s profligacy ahead of Sunday’s second leg, adding that the players, coaching staff and management are poised for an outright win against the Equatoguineans.
“We saw the first game. We saw what was our undoing – missing a lot of chances early in the game,” he recalled. “I think that was our undoing.
“We have realized that the earlier we convert our chances, the better for us. So, this time around, we are working on converting those chances and making sure that there are no wastages.
“We know that it is a difficult game but we are mapping out our strategy to enable us win the match and qualify.
“The players know what is at stake. The players, the technical crew and the management; everybody have resolved to work harder to win, because we know that our fans and the sponsors of the team are expecting nothing other than victory, resounding victory in that matter.”
Eguma’s men must overturn the 2-1 deficit on Sunday at the Adokiye Amiesimaka stadium to advance to the first round of the competition.
In 2017, the former Gabros coach guided Rivers United to the group stages of the CAF Confederation Cup.
