Lobi Stars of Makurdi coach, Solomon Ogbeide has set in motion plans to ensure his side overturn the odds against Gor Mahia of Kenya in the second leg of their CAF Champions League first round tie this weekend.
Though Ogbiede blamed poor attitude and loss of concentration for his side’s 3-1 loss in the first leg away on Sunday, the veteran coach said the squad will put heads together to correct all their errors for the next tie.
Ogbeide scolded his lads for negligence on their part in the first leg and stressed that they must not repeat the errors of Nairobi when they host the former CAF Cup winners this Sunday in Enugu.
Footballlive.ng reports that a brace from Samuel Onyango a Jacques Tuyisenge strike enabled the eighteen-time Kenyan champions look good ahead of the second leg.
A draw in the return leg, away in Nigeria, will be enough to push the Kenyan champions into the group stages of the competition, but Ogbeide has other plans on his mind.
Though he took a sweeping line in his apportioning of blames for the loss, the coach insists the second leg will be better for his side.
Ogbeide said: “A lapse of concentration by my defenders allowed quick goals. That’s football.
“We have to look where we went wrong and make corrections and we will make adjustments before the return match.
“We are hopeful for a good result in the return match. The main problem was not on coaching, but attitude, and we have to improve on that.”
