Beware: Coach Kwasi Appiah warned ahead of Confe. Cup tie

Former Power Dynamos coach Fred Mwila is optimistic the Kitwe side will overcome Sudanese outfit Al Khartoum in the Confederation Cup preliminary round return leg.

Power, who lost 0-1 in the first leg last Saturday, need to win by two unanswered goals to progress to the first round.

‘The game is not over. That was just the first half. If they looked at the deficiency of the Sudanese, they will do well at Arthur Davies. They are not yet out and will score two goals,’ said Mwila in Lusaka yesterday.

Mwila guided Power to the Nelson Mandela Challenge [now Confederation Cup] triumph in 1991.

Power beat BBC Lions of Nigeria 5-4 on aggregate.
Mwila called on fans to rally behind the team on March 1.

He said Tenant Chilumba is an intelligent coach who will plot Al Khartoum’s exit from the competition.

Mwila, however, said the Kwesi Appiah-tutored side will be a hard nut to crack.

And former Power midfielder Linos Makwaza is confident the Arthur Davies Stadium outfit will qualify for the first round.

‘It’s game on and I think Power will win the return leg and qualify. I think Power will manage to score two goals at home because they have a good attacking force,’ said Makwaza, who was part of the team that won the Nelson Mandela Challenge.
