What Kaizer Chiefs can expect from PWD Bamenda ahead of their Champions League Preliminary first leg match in Limbe, Cameroon.
The Elite One champions, Abakwa boys have opened up about their preparations ahead of their clash with Amakhosi of South Africa.
PWD Bamenda head coach David Pagou says he will field a winning team when they face Kaizer Chiefs following their successful double friendly campaign in Libya.
PWD Bamenda will host Kaizer Chiefs on sunday, 29th of November 2020 in the CAF Champions League Preliminary round first leg to be played at the Limbe Omnisport Stadium.
With the Elite One Championship yet to start, PWD has failled to engage in competitive matches. But they have been widely engaged in evaluation matches with the most recent being against Lybian side Al Ahli of Tripoli.
Unlike PWD Bamenda, Kaizer Chiefs have been playing competitive matches so far. But the Amakhosi have been struggling this season with just 1 win in 5 games. Kaizer Chiefs latest defeat came in a 1-0 defeat to Moroka Swallows in the PSL as the sit 11th on the table with 5 points.
“The results of our stay in Libya are positive because we had a victory and a draw,” Pagou said on Lindomptable Sport.
“After our victory, we said to ourselves that we should not lose the second game. It was, therefore, necessary to carry out calculations.
“Moreover, we did not even have the opportunity to score several other goals, but the players made a lot of bad choices.”
“The championship has not started. I don’t know what the mood will be in the game against Kaizer Chiefs because you know that a competitive game is different from an evaluation game,” he added.
“The state of mind is different, the mentality too. All the same, it allows us to gauge the level of our workforce. We can say that we are on the right track.
“But the real judge will be on Sunday. I know football is played on the ground. So, whatever the forces involved, if we manage the match well, everything can tip in our favour.”
Pagou revealed that his charges will be motivated when they face the 2001 Caf African Cup Winners’ Cup champions, Chiefs.
“The public will see a winning team. The simple act of playing against Kaizer Chiefs motivates players,” David Pagou added.
“Apart from Ashu Kerrido and the two Nigerian recruits who have already played in such matches, there are no other players who have already been at this level of the competition.
“But as I see the group’s state of mind as we approach this match, they are really determined” Pagou added.
Kaizer Chiefs are scheduled to host PWD Bamenda in the second-leg match on the weekend of 4-6 December 2020 and the winner on aggregate will face Angolan side CD Primeiro de Agosto in the first round tie.
