Botswana visit Guinea Bissau on Saturday in confident mood of picking up a key result in their 2015 Africa Cup second round, final leg qualifier.

The Zebra's lead Guinea Bissau 2-0 from the first leg played in Gaborone on July 20.

And coach  Peter Butler insists his side can deliver in unknown territory in Bissau this weekend to book their passage to Group G.

However, Guinea Bissau are unbeaten at home in the qualifiers after shocking Central Africa Republic 3-1 in the last round.

“I have been in football for a long time, we cannot complain and say we have lost this and that, I have no doubt they will have some good players, so will we,” Butler said.

“We will go there with belief; we will go there with a really good football team. We are improving all the time, we are getting better and the most important thing is we did not concede (at home)."

Butler has some right to feel confident and is unbeaten in the qualifiers with two home wins and a scoreless draw away to Burundi whom they eliminated in the first round.

And another away draw is all Botswana need to ensure they advance to the group stage in September.

Meanwhile, overall winner from this second round fixture will advance to Group G to join Egypt, Senegal and Tunisia and will play the latter away  in the pool opener during the weekend of September 6.
