The Super Falcons coach is hopeful his side will put up an improved display against the Nzalang Nacional on Wednesday

Nigeria coach Thomas Dennerby is confident that Super Falcons will put up their 'best performance' in the Africa Women's Cup of Nations against Equatorial Guinea on Saturday.

The defending champions are in dire need of a win to confirm their place in the knockout stages and must negotiate their way past already ousted Nzalang Nacional in their final group clash in Cape Coast.

And the 59-year-old Swede believes his charges will step up their form in delivering the goals to power them through to the semi-final of the competition.

"It is just a normal day at work to ensure that we get a victory against Equatorial Guinea tomorrow and improve on our performances," Dennerby said at the pre-match conference on Friday.

"We are not doing any changes. We are working on as we have done from the beginning. Going to training sessions to prepare the team, have pre/post match meetings and watch videos of the others so we know how to play and so on.

"We would have scored more goals against Zambia but we miss the chances and we are now working on improving on that. We keep working on correcting it and not to make the players stressed up and feel disappointed."
