Hearts of Oak head coach Samuel Boadu says the team will use a different approach in the second leg encounter against Algerian side JS Soura in the CAF Confederation Cup play-offs.
The Ghana Premier League champions secured a 2-0 win over JS Soura in the first leg played at the Accra Sports Stadium on Sunday.
Goals from Salisu Ibrahim and Agyenim Boateng ensured the Phobians go into the second leg this weekend with a two-goal lead.
Speaking after the game, Samuel Boadu indicated the team has learned a lot from their CAF Champions League game against Wydad Athletic Club (WAC) of Morocco where they exited the competition in the second round.
Hearts of Oak won the first leg 1-0 at home and were thrashed 6-1 in the return leg in Morocco, a situation Coach Samuel Boadu is trying to avoid against Algerian side JS Soura.
The former Medeama coach mentioned that he wasn’t happy about the scoreline in the first leg.
“I am not happy at all with the scoreline, because we should have scored more than just two goals,” Boadu said when quizzed about his view on the result of the game.
“We created a lot of chances and we scored just two goals.”
“We have learnt a lot of lessons in our match against WAC. We are going to use that as a point in our second leg against JS Soura”, he added.
Hearts of Oak will depart Ghana on Wednesday to Algeria to continue with preparations for the game on Sunday, December 5, 2021.
A win will see the Phobians reach the money zone or CAF Confederation Cup group stage for the first time since 2004.
