Head coach of Panthers of Equatorial Guinea, Silva says he is counting on Ghanaian midfielder Bernard Don Bortey to do the harm when his side take on Medeama SC in the second league tier of the their CAF Confederation preliminary match on Sunday at the Essipong stadium.
Medeama who made their qualification a mere formality by managing to squeeze a 2-1 win over their counterparts last week Sunday in Malabo will be hoping to avoid any complacency when they face the Equatorial Guineans on Sunday the 16th of March.
But the trainer who only lost his first match to the Ghanaian side after his appointment a few weeks ago has relied all his hopes in the former Hearts of Oak winger.
The former Aduana stars player missed the first Leg in Malabo through injury but has been cleared fit to play in Sunday’s clash. Bortey joined Panthers at the beginning of the 2013-2014 season after a 2year stint with Dormaa Aduana Stars.
