Rivers United need to beat Club Africain of Tunisia in a CAF Confederation Cup fixture on Sunday in Port Harcourt, and coach Stanley Eguma has informed his players how important a victory is.
All four teams in the group are tied on same number of points.
-We have to show a lot of concentration in the game and the players have to display commitment.
-It is a big game for us, a make or mar game so the players have to win the game and win with (a lot of) goals.
-It (failure to score plenty of goals) has been one of our predicaments (for some time) now.
-I am very optimistic that with what I have been seeing of the boys in training, the future is bright and I am sure we will have a good game on Sunday.
-I spoke to the players about this and even they admitted that it is a problem.
-For you to win a game, you must be alive for the entire 90 minutes and even beyond.
-To score one goal does not mean a match is over; you have to consolidate and also try to defend the goal.
-We have been working on this (weakness) to see that we improve the endurance levels of the players.
-This group is very tough and every club is capitalizing on home advantage to amass maximum points.
-Goals will play a very big role in the final and decisive moments in this group.
-We have been working on scoring goals and we just appeal to Nigerians to keep supporting us, he told Rivers United official website.
