CAF Confederation Cup: Dreams FC confident of reaching group stage

Assistant Coach of Dreams FC, Winfred Dormon, has said he is impressed with his side’s 2-1 victory over Sierra Leonean side Kallon FC in their first-leg encounter in the CAF Confederation Cup played at the Accra Stadium last Friday.

Despite the slim win at home, he is confident that, with the right approach and strategy, his side will earn the required away result for a successful progression to the group stage of the competition.

Godfred Atuahene gave Dreams FC an early lead in the 11th minute, but Kallon FC responded shortly before half-time as Daniel Karim found the net to level up the scores.

John Antwi scored the winner in the 55th minute when he calmly converted a penalty to give the home side a 2-1 advantage. 

In a post-match interview, Coach Dormon noted that the slim win was a perfect result although he wished they had converted some of the scoring chances wasted to ensure an easy passage to the group stage.

“I am impressed with the performance because it was a win. Of course, it is a two-leg affair, so we need to go and re-strategise going into the second leg. We came to play for results, and we started very well and we scored in the 11th minute in the first half. We were controlling this game and dictating the intensity of the game where we had a pocket of chances and we should have scored more,” he said. 

“The way we were missing the chances was very frustrating, but it is a two-legged affair, so we have to go back, do the review and re-strategise,” he added.

 The gaffer was confident they would map out the right strategy to survive the return leg match in Sierra Leone on September 30.

“I believe that when we go, they have to open up, which we can also take our chances and we can also take the game to them. I believe we have to change our strategy and our approach and change the structure of the team,” he said.

On injuries, he was confident the medical team would work around the clock to ensure a clean bill of health in readiness for the return encounter. 

“There were minor injuries. Two weeks from now we believe that the medical team will work very hard to make sure we have a full house so that we can have a lot of options to select from.

“I am still positive that we will go to Free Town to get the result because we need this competition to make a statement, not only for Dreams FC but for the entire nation,” he said.
