SOFAPAKA coach Sam Timbe says his team remains confident of overturning their 2-1 loss against FC Platinum in Saturday’s Confederations Cup match.

Speaking a day before the Kenyan team departed for Zimbabwe, Timbe said they can make it to the first round. “If we can create same number of chances that we did at home and use them, we should be able to turn around the result.

“We intend to open up our game in search for goals and hope that we can utilise scoring opportunities killing off any counter-attack from our opponents.”

The Ugandan tactician admitted that the task to overturn 2-1 defeat remains difficult but not impossible. “It is normal that we will take time to get used to playing away. Being away is difficult because your opponents tend to have some advantage and so generally, it is a tricky match for us,” he pointed out.

Sofapaka are scheduled to jet out of Nairobi on Thursday for Zvishavane, Zimbabwe, approximately 385 kilometres south west of the capital Harare for their return Confederation Cup preliminary round tie against FC Platinum.

The two sides will clash on Saturday at 15,000-seater, Mandava Stadium, in what is expected to be a hostile territory for Batoto ba Mungu. At the same time, Gor Mahia, who are competing in African Champion League, will depart on Saturday aboard a Kenya Airways for their return leg fixture against Madagascan champions Caisse Nationale de Prévoyance Sociale Sport. K’Ogalo won the first leg 1-0 in Nairobi.

The match will be held at Stade Municipal de Toamasina, Miarinarivo on Sunday.
