We will not lose by huge margin – Mbabane Swallows Coach
Mbabane Swallows head coach Thabo Vilakati believes will not lose by a huge number of goals should they not force a draw against Sensational Zanaco when they meet in the first leg of the CAF Champions league first round encounter at Nkoloma Stadium on Wednesday, March 7th.
Swallows will be without defender Sanele Mkhweli and creative midfielder Njabulo Ndhlovu on Wednesday something the coach feels might lead to his team failing to beat the seven time Zambia super league champions.
” In coaching the ethics don’t allow us to predict games but am confident we will get a draw or even if we lose we will not lose by an avalanche of goals. Like i have said we have a number of suspensions but we are not blaming anyone for that,” Vilakati said upon arrival at Kenneth Kaunda international Airport yesterday.
” We have a number of suspensions but i think we have enough cover to play the game,” He added.
Vilakati does not think their domestic dominance will play a role in the encounter as they face a different opponent.
” Winning trophies at home does not count when it comes to the CAF Champions league. At home we have been playing the same opponents and now in this competition we face a totally different opposition from a different country,” He said.
Swallows arrived in Zambia on Monday at 21:00hrs and will lock horns with Sensational Zanaco at Nkoloma Stadium on Wednesday, March 7th.
