Sensational Zanaco head coach Numba Mumamba rued his teams missed chances in their 2-1 CAF Confederation Cup second preliminary round first leg tie against Bolton City.
Roger Kola and Chitiya Mususu were stretched out of the field due to injuries and Numba believes the forced substitutions affected his game plan. Bolton scored one goal at home but Numba is not worried because his team managed to score two away goals.
“A good result especially that we were playing away and we got a win but I think this is a game we would have scored a lot of goals but our finishing was not good enough, but the teamwork and Fighting Spirit was excellent we just have to build on that and start preparing for the return leg in two weeks time,”he said.
“Yes, the Substitution affected the game plan especially that we did not plan for that but it happens in football all we needed is to adjust and the two people that went in did well but their finishing was not good enough."
” I don’t think that will ‘haunt’ us because we have scored two goals away from home and that puts us in a better position than them all we need is just to get down to work, plan and prepare the team so that we get a victory at home,” he added.
Tafadzwa Rusike and Roger Kola scored a goal each to help Zanaco snatch a 2-1 away win in the first leg and put them one foot into the pre-group stage.
