Brandon Truter: Sekhukhune can’t be complacent against Saint Eloi Lupopo

Sekhukhune United head coach Brandon Truter remains circumspect about his side’s chances against Saint Eloi Lupopo despite the 3-1 first-leg win.

Truter’s charges secured a 3-1 win in the first leg of their CAF Confederation Cup second preliminary round at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday.

Chibuike Ohizu, Jamie Webber, and Tresor Yamba scored to secure victory for Babina Noko, handing them a strong position ahead of the second leg in Kinshasa.

However, Truter has warned that it will be a tough trip to the Democratic Republic of the Congo and that the tie is far from over.

“A two-goal cushion going into the second leg… we are not sure about it. Kinshasa is not an easy place to go to, but I’m happy with the performance of the guys and the result,” said Truter.

“The hostility in Kinshasa… everyone knows about it, but if you look at the team, we have a lot of experienced players. I can count Badra Ali Sangare, Daniel Cardoso, Edwin Gyimah, Kamohelo Mokotjo and Ohizu.

“There is a lot of experience and maturity and players who played at this level faced that hostility.

“So, there is nothing to worry about, but from the squad personnel, they will advise the younger players and those who have not been there about how to deal with the situation.”

The second leg will take place on 1 October at Stade des Martyrs de la Pentecote.
