Plateau United won’t be intimidated by Esperance in Rades – Ilechukwu


Plateau United head coach, Fidelis Ilechukwu says he will adopt an attacking style against Esperance of Tunisia in Rades.

The Jos club defeated Esperance 2-1 in the first leg of their CAF Champions League first-round tie at the Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja on Sunday.

The second leg will take place in Rades on Friday.

A goalless draw will be enough for Plateau United to scale through against the four-time champions.

Ilechukwu reckoned beating the Tunisians in front of their fans will be a difficult task but insisted that his players will be up to the challenge.

“I am adopting an all-attacking formation in the return leg in order to qualify for the group stage which we have already set for ourselves long before now and we are committed to that objective,” the former Heartland gaffer told the club’s media.

“It’s always a difficult task to play the North Africans in front of their fans but we won’t allow ourselves to be intimidated.”

The overall winners will proceed to the money-spinning group stage of the competition.
