Enyimba head coach has not ruled out his team’s chances for the 2nd leg of the CAF Champions.
Enyimba lost 1-0 away to Burkinabe champions Rahimo FC in Ouagadougou but Abd’Allah believe the worst has been averted by not losing by more than one goal.
“It’s not a good result for us but at the same time it’s not catastrophic because if we had lost by two goals or three then it would be a difficult situation.” Abd’Allah told DiegwuSports.
The title winning coach admitted that his side lack match fitness but expects them to get fitter as the tournament progresses.
“As you know we are all starting and results are always this way until we get ourselves into the competition where we get much fitter.
“They have a youthful and young team with very good mobility and good techniques and they are very fit.”
When asked whether Enyimba was capable of overturning the one goal deficit, Abd’Allah was confident that his team will do the business.
“The goal came in with a deflection. We could have saved that goal but now we have to go back to Aba and cancel the goal and have to get another one more goal to seal the deal.
“We’ve seen the team now so the most important thing is to go back, sit down and work with what we’ve seen of the team.”
The 2nd leg is expected to take place on August 26 at the Enyimba International Stadium Aba.
