Bandari FC will adopt a more defensive approach against US Ben Guerdane during their CAF Confederation Cup return leg match on Sunday.

Bandari carry a 2-0 first leg lead into the clash and Mwalala says the priority is to defend their advantage but would be glad if his charges get an away goal to increase their qualification chances.

“Our big assignment will be to defend our two goals and if we get one more it will be job done,” said Mwalala.

On goal scoring the former Harambee stars striker added that they are training on it throughout which has resulted to six goals in last three matches.

“In the last three weeks we have been training on creating and scoring goals which is yielding now and we hope to score again.”

The Kenyan Premier League club, who beat Guerdane a fortnight ago at Kasarani Stadium, held their final training at Jamhuri High School in Nairobi on Wednesday and will jet out later tonight to Tunisia for the clash.

Goals from Yema Mwana and Abdallah Hassan were enough for the Kenyan side to stand a good chance of crossing to the play-off round.

Bandari have receive a huge boost as Hassan who missed their weekend win against Sony Sugar FC in the Kenyan Premier League is back after some teeth problem.

“Our squad is full fit and we are glad Abdallah is back after some treatment last week in Mombasa.”

Bandari will still miss the service of their newly acquired Mohammed ‘Messi’ Katana, Sosthenes Idah as well as keeper Justin Ndikumana who have not been cleared by CAF.
