CAF Confederation Cup

Furman On TP Clash After Lubumbashi Trip

SuperSport United captain, Dean Furman, says his side is buoyed by playing in hostile environments like Stade TP Mazembe but admits they need to be more clinical at home. 
 
 
Matsatsantsa lost 2-1 in Lubumbashi on Sunday afternoon in the first leg of their CAF Confederation Cup tie with Congolese giants, TP Mazembe, scoring a vital away goal to take with them to Lucas Moripe Stadium this coming weekend.
 
Furman, who has played a vital role in their progression through the tournament, will now lead his team out in Tshwane on Saturday to try and finish the job as SuperSport look for their first ever continental trophy.
 
The Bafana international said after the defeat, “I think we actually enjoy it, rather than get intimidated by it. It’s exactly what you want as a player, you love playing in front of packed stadiums. What’s nice about it is that last time we got clapped off the pitch and this time there were long periods where we frustrated them and turned the mood against the home team. 
 
 
“That’s a big positive for us, and something that we can certainly take back. Hopefully, we have a big crowd that’s getting behind us.”
 
Meanwhile, he does think that his side will need to be better in front of goal if they’re to finish the job, admitting that they didn’t take their chances against Mazembe in the first leg.
 
He said, “We do believe that we should’ve been 1-0 up before they even got a chance, so I think one thing we have to be in the next game is clinical. I think our legs ran out in the end when they were pushing and that made it difficult for us, but 2-1 is not a bad result. We’ve got that away goal and we know we’re difficult to beat at home.”
