Technical adviser of Rivers United Stanley Eguma has admitted that his side should have scored more goals after his team struggled to see off Ugandan side KCCA FC.
Rivers United started the game on a bright note and quickly went ahead courtesy of goals from Bernard Ovoke in the 2nd minute and Frederick Obomate in the 15th minute. The pride of Rivers had lots of begging chances to kill off the game in the first-half before a defensive error from Douhadji gave KCCA a goal on the stroke of half-time.
The second-half however was a stark contrast to the first-half as it had few chances and saw the game end 2:1 at Full Time.
Although he was happy with the result, but Eguma was not satisfied with the goal margin and had this to say: “To qualify we have to score goals because the game now has everything to do with scoring.
“We started like a team hungry for goals and had two quick goals and it was expected we would get more but my players were careless in front of goal especially in the first half.
“Today we were the architect of our own problems by not scoring goals but I’m happy we came out of the game victorious”.
The Victory Sees Rivers United go third in their group due to an inferior goal difference as all teams in the group are tied on 6 points each.
Rivers United will host Club Africain on July 2, 2017 at the Yakubu Gowon stadium on Matchday 5 of the CAF Confederation Cup.
