Nigerian club Lobi Stars sound warning to Gor Mahia
Gor Mahia’s next opponents in the Caf Africa Champions League, Lobi Stars of Nigeria, have warned the Kenyan champions to expect an all out attack when the two teams class in Nairobi next week.
This despite the fact that Nigeria side only scored two goals over two legs of the preliminary stage to oust Cameroon’s UMS de Loum on a 2-1 on aggregate.
Lobi Stars coach Solomon Ogbeide says he still needs to sharpen his attack so as to stand a chance of defeating Gor Mahia in the first round of this lucrative tournament.
Ogbeide was quoted by Goal.com saying that results against the Cameroonian side wasn’t enough to warrant celebrations, also admitting that he was not happy with the way his players spurned several goal scoring chances.
“It is the desire of every coach to win a game and that is what I have just done. But we still have work to do. We will go back and make corrections. The goal scoring problem is a global problem. It is not peculiar with Lobi Stars but every day we go back and continue practicing,” he said.
Gor Mahia similarly struggled in front of goal winning the first leg against Malawian opposition Nyasa Bullets by a solitary goal before suffering an identical loss in the reverse fixture to scrap through on a 5-4 win on penalties.
The winner of this tie will proceed to the money-spinning group stage of the tournament which comes a guaranteed prize money of Sh58 million.
