Harare City face Madagascar side

HARARE City coach Taurai Mangwiro is upbeat of defending their 3-2 lead in Madagascar against AS Adema whom they face on Sunday in a Caf Confederations Cup preliminary round, second leg match.

Harare City left Harare via Johannesburg with 20 players on Wednesday morning and were expected to arrive in Madagascar late afternoon.

But the capital city club face possible upset against AS Adema who enjoy two away goals and need just a 1-0 victory to sail to the next round.

While taking caution, Mangwiro is however positive of returning home with a good result.

“We might have made life difficult for ourselves by conceding two goals at home but I am confident we will go through to the next round. We just need to be composed and hand on to our lead,” Mangwiro said.

“The players know the kind of task we are facing. Obviously Adema will try to come fast and hard on us from the first whistle to cancel our lead. But we are aware of that and we just should not give them that chance.

"We will also not engage the defensive gear. We will try to attack them as well to make the aggregate score line healthy for us so that we do not put ourselves under pressure for the rest of the match.”

Mangwiro travelled to Madagascar with Raphael Manuvire who grabbed a brace in the first leg as well as Ronald Chitoyi who scored City’s other goal.

However, center back Crispen Dickson was left behind as his passport is due to expire in May.

He did not qualify for a Malagasy visa which is granted to persons whose passports are valid within the next six months of visa application.
