Zesco United a mountain to climb – Daniel Etor


Rangers International forward, Etor Daniel has described his side’s​ all-important CAF Confederation Cup second leg clash with Zambian giants​, ZESCO united as a “mountain to climb”, after his side blew away a two goal lead in the first leg to end the tie 2-2 at the Nnamdi Azikwe stadium, Enugu.

The Flying antelopes are expected to jet out of the country to Ndola today to be the guest of the Zambian side this weekend in the return leg fixture to determine which side will make it to the next round of the CAF Confederation Cup.

The former Enyimba International midfielder said his side are certain to get the much needed win to proceed to the next stage of Africa’s second tier club competition.

“We have a mountain to climb against ZESCO united after the first fixture unfortunate two-goal chance we blew away at the Cathedral stadium. The mountain is surmountable and by the grace of God we will certainly and successfully climb the mountain.

“The first fixture clash in Enugu was a good match, we dominated play throughout the encounter as well as gotten more chances at goals than the visitors but we were unlucky to convert many of the chances.

“ZESCO got fewer chances here in Enugu and they were able to make it count positively. We were far better than them in all the departments but we are no more thinking of the first fixture clash. The coaches have done a lot corrective work on the lapses noticed in the first leg to ensure we are clinical in front of goal.

“Although it won’t be an easy game for us but we are going there to give a very good account of ourselves. There won’t be any need to travel if we have the mindset of going there to lose but our travelling to Zambia would be worthwhile at the end.

“If we are motivated enough then the victory is almost ours. Our chances might be very slim but so far they came here and got away with a draw, we can as well go there and get a win, it is realisable”, Etor told naijafootballplus.com
