CAF Champions League: Bashir Hayford optimistic about Ashgold qualification to next round

first_imgAshantigold coach Bashir Hayford is upbeat about his side’s chances of qualifying to the next round of the CAF Champions League despite a slim 1-0 victory over Algerian side MO Bejaia.The Miners, who took the lead on the hour mark through Joshua Tijani, were guilty of squandering many chances in a game to give them a comfortable lead heading to Algeria.Despite playing with a numerical advantage in the latter stages of the second half, the Miners failed to extend their lead which leaves the return leg wide open.However, Hayford believes his side can put up a good display in a fortnight’s time and scale the Algerian hurdle.“Man proposes and God disposes,” Hayford told Joy Sports.“We thought we could score more than two but we scored only one. We don’t have a problem at all.” “It’s a victory. So we have to prepare well and go there. Once they have come here and played for ninety minutes we will also go there and play for ninety minutes.”“At the end of ninety minutes you’ll also hear the scoreline,” he added.“The boys will not go there and chook themselves. They will go and prepare very well.”Prior to the return leg, the Miners will play Medeama in the opening fixture of the Ghana Premier League in Obuasi. –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH.
