The Nigerian giants reached the next round of the competition after eliminating UMS de Loum of Cameroon on a 2-1 aggregate while Gor Mahia advanced after seeing off Nyasa Big Bullets of Malawi on a 5-4 aggregate win.
Despite Lobi Stars winning 2-0 at home against the Cameroonian side, coach Solomon Ogbeide has revealed that they do not have anything to celebrate yet and must work on improving their shooting skills before they face K’Ogalo.
Even though coach Ogbeide admitted that goal scoring problem is a worldwide malaise, he was not happy with the way his players spurned several scoring chances and that they are going back home to immediately resume work on tutoring their attackers the act of converting scoring chances.
“What should you expect? I should be highly elated of course.
“It is the desire of every coach to win a game and that is what I have just done. It is not yet Uhuru because we still have work to do better than we are. We will go back and make corrections. Goal scoring problem is a global problem. It is not peculiar with Lobi Stars alone but every day we go back and continue practicing.
“We will begin to do goal scoring exercises until it becomes part of us. Football is no basketball where any time you go down there you dunk. We will begin to do our best and I believe it should be enough to get us what we desire before our next match against Gor Mahia.”
However, before the two sides clash, Gor Mahia have a league match to open their title defence against Bandari on Saturday.
