CAF Confederation Cup knock out round|18-mar- 2018|Nest of Champions|4:00pm

We get back to winning way.....

9th minute goal from Adeshina Gata against Nasarawa united in the Nest of Champions on matchday 12, ensure we get back to winning way. After suffering defeat in our last two matches against Lobi Stars(NPFL) and Al-ittihad(CAF) respectively, it was a much needed win to keep up in the league table and also boost the player's confidence going into the second leg of CAF Confederation Cup knockout stage with Al-ittihad at the Nest of Champions.

What happened in the 1 st leg?

After landing safely at Sfax(Tunisia), the team quickly settled and commence training a head of the encounter. An entertaining match that ended 0-0 at half time, with every action you anticipate from a CAF tournament match. Aniekeme Asuquo dribble into the Al-ittihad box and delivered a great cross but no one to fine the back of the net, this action begins the second half with hope, before Muad Eisa scored the winning goal for the host and the match ended Al-ittihad 1-0 Akwa Uinted fc. Work yet undone....

Going into any second leg of any knockout game without away goal, lives us with more work to do both defensively and in attack. Great attention is expected from the defends line to prevent the visitors from getting an away goal, considering their 3 away goals against Sahel. The attacking players need to take their chances when it comes, a good defensive side like Al-ittihad require tactical discipline from our players.

With the Manager Abdu Maikaba experience, we can be sure the 'Promise Keepers' will make us proud again. The Promise Keeper history of going through to next round with a second leg win and a winning mentality from Monday win against Nasarawa fc, will be an extra motivation to our team to progress.
