The Republic of Sierra Leone Armed Forces FC (RSLAF) head coach Alimamy Bangura aka coach Allo pictured has refused to write off Nigerian top flight side Wiki Tourists.
Bangura has issued a warning against complacency ahead of next week’s return tie in the CAF Confederation Cup, insisting that the tie is not over yet despite his side’s 2-0 comfortable victory in the first leg preliminary match at the Siaka Steven Stadium, in Freetown on Sunday.
The Bauchi Elephants who are debutants in the competition will be looking to overturn the deficit when they host RSLAF at the Tafawa Balewa Stadium, Bauchi next Sunday.
The calmly spoken technician says it will be tough in Nigeria and the tie is not over yet but hopefully, they can secure qualification.
“Firstly I want to say thanks to Allah and I’m really happy with the victory, Coach Bangura told Footballsierraleone.net.
He added: “I think is not over yet, we are now preparing for the second leg. In Nigeria is going to be tough, and for now, I have nothing to say until the end of next week’s tie.
“Hopefully we can go through to the next stage by the grace of Allah, but it is only half the job done.”
The winner will face Tunisian Omnisport outfit – Club Africain in the next round of the competition.
