Head Coach of Hearts of Oak, Samuel Boadu has stressed the need to strategize effectively ahead of his side’s CAF Confederation Cup playoff second leg encounter against Algeria’s JS Saoura.
The Phobians recorded a comfortable 2-0 victory over their Algerian counterparts in the first leg encounter at the Accra Sports Stadium last Sunday.
Goals from midfielders Salifu Ibrahim and Agyenim Boateng handed the Ghanaian champions a huge advantage ahead the return leg which is slated for Sunday December 5, 2021.
Speaking in a post-match interview after their vital scalp against the Algerian side, Coach Boadu indicated that their recent encounter against Wydad Athletic Club had taught him lessons on how to approach such opponent.
“Going into the return game, I have learnt a lot from the WAC game, so strategically we need to strategies very well for the second leg encounter. We would do our maximum best to qualify,” he said.
“I urge all Hearts fans to keep calm and this is the time we need their support. There should motivate the boys when things go wrong and at the appropriate time,” Boadu added.
Boadu further noted that, the win against JS Saoura would be a major morale booster to the players who have had a difficult past few weeks but says they need to do a lot of work to get more positive results.
He added that their recent camping in Cape Coast did put the players in condition for the match against the Algerian side considering the serene environment
