Akwana wary of Aviacao

NAIROBI, Kenya, February 10- Sofapaka interim coach Ezekiel Akwana has warned his team against complacency when they play Angolan outfit Aviacao in their CAF Confederations Cup return leg on Sunday.

Akwana said that Aviacao showed in the first encounter that they are a tough side to break down and will be difficult to beat if they score a goal at Nyayo National Stadium.

“They can turn the tables on us. It ended 0-0 last time. If they score against us it means we have get at least two or three goals,” said Akwana.

“The whole team knows that the match is going to be tough but if we get something in the net, we will be comfortable but its going to be tight. We’re ready for war,” he added.

Akwana believes his side’s superior pace can catch the Angolans off guard on Sunday afternoon.

“Aviacao are a very solid. They move around well but are slow as a cohesive unit. So that’s a loophole because we can surprise them with our speed and hopefully get some goals,” he added.

Akwana will be counting on the return of captain James Situma and Osborne Monday to reinforce his troops at Nyayo.

He’ll still be without Wilson Oburu and Laurent Tumba who are still recovering from injuries but Akwana is confident the team’s depth will serve Sofapaka well.

He’s also expected to field several of his Harambee Stars players who featured against South Africa on Wednesday.

Aviacao are expected to arrive in Nairobi on Friday.
