– As LISCR expresses hope in domestic phase two
Ahead of their match against SuperSport of South Africa in the playoff of the CAF Confederation Cup, Barrack Young Controllers have begun preparation for Sunday’s encounter.
Due to the ongoing Intra Governmental League at the team’s home ground, Blue Field, the Go Blue Boys yesterday used the LFA’s technical center in Careysburg for their training session.
The team returned home on Tuesday after their participation in the WAFU tournament held in Senegal with sponsorship from FOX Sports Network of Los Angeles, United Sates.
Many supporters, in reaction to a Daily Observer publication about their recent participation in the WAFU tournament, have lauded the team for their performance in international matches, but urged them to improve on their scoring tactics.
“BYC players need to work on their scoring abilities and also need to put more time into penalty shootouts,” Jack Dougee said.
“They have to forget about their past matches and look forward to the bigger task they have against SuperSport. We can still make a difference,” said Watanga FC’s striker Chauncy Freeman.
A victory for the Go Blue Boys over their South African opponents will see them advance to the group stage of the CAF Confederation Cup.
The LFA’s undefeated 1st division side in the ongoing national league, LISCR FC has expressed hope of better performances ahead of the resumption of phase two of the League.
