Vipers captain Milton Karisa insists they don’t need any extra motivation in a bid to bounce back against Horoya in the CAF Champions League on Saturday.

Beto Bianchi’s side kicked off their Group C campaign with a heavy 5-0 defeat to Raja Casablanca last Friday and were three goals down inside the opening 38 minutes.

Meanwhile, Horoya also made a winning start in the group after edging Simba 1-0, and Karisa has stressed the importance of the Ugandan champions picking themselves up quickly from the setback on matchday 1.

The 27-year-old winger admits emotions are running high in the team but believes they are capable of reacting positively this weekend by remaining united as a group.

“After a result like Friday’s, I think the first 48 hours are about digesting what happened and being critical with your own performance, but after that you can ask some questions, sit together as a team and move forward from there,” he told the club’s official website.

“But you need to do that as a group, without any friction or individual finger pointing, because we are a team. Everybody is upset with what happened on Friday, but we don’t need any extra motivation for a game as big as Saturday’s.

“We need to get up again, and I know we have the capability to do that. We know how important it is to win that game against Horoya.”
