In the wake of their 2-1 win over Mamelodi Sundiowns in the CAF Champions League first leg semifinal, Zesco United coach George Lwandamina says they are aware of the challenges ahead.

Also known as 'Chicken', Lwandamina tells AfricanFootball.com that the Brazilians will be a tough customer at home but he is aware the job is not done yet.

Team Ya Ziko head to Pretoria enjoying a 2-1 advantage having beaten Sundowns last Saturday in Ndola courtesy of a Jackson Mwanza brace.

Lwandamina reflected on the fact that Sundowns' CAF opponents this season have failed to win in Tshwane such as Zamalek and Enyimba.


"Look, we know we still have to do the job in Pretoria, this is a tough competition," Lwandamina tells this website.

"I know they scored an away goal and that doesn't mean they must celebrate, that also applies to us.

"We know teams who visited them failed to score in Pretoria like Zamalek. Yes Sundowns are a good team but that can change.

"There is nothing special in scoring an away goal, however, we know the job is not done."

Meanwhile, the Absa Premiership champions found the back of the net through Khama Billiat who will want to be on target once again.

Although it is not clear where the match will be staged at Loftus Versfeld or the Lucas Moripe Stadium, the encounter is set to be staged in Tshwane on Saturday, 24 September.
