The ‘Barrack Boys’ defeated Stade Malien 1-0 in the first leg of the CAF Champions League qualifiers on Sunday at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS) , but the striker is not convince by the result.

Barrack Young Controller (BYC) lead striker Mark Paye has expressed disappointment in his side failure to score more than one goal in the encounter and believes the return leg will be a real battle.

Paye who missed the most glamorous chance for BYC in the encounter is however of a strong conviction that they can still turn the leaf around in Bamako.

“Even though we won, but I think the result is very bad for us. In this competition goal is very important, 1-0 put us in a real battle.

We have to defense well and attack well in the second leg. I mean stop the hosts from scoring and at the sometime try to score which is not an easy task,” the LFA First Division League Most Valuable Player added.

He continued: Stade Malien is an experience team which has most of its players playing for the Malian home based team, so we will have to fight to the letter.

The striker said his first half miss did not play on him, but rather gave him more courage as he went on to create the penalty.

“I knew very well that was not the goal time. I really tried to score. I did everything I could to control the ball, but it did not go in. I felt bad, but I had to put that behind me and keep fighting,” he said.

The muscular forward collected a wonderful pass from strike-mate Van-Dave Harmon and had only goalkeeper Djigui Diarra to beat pass, but the BYC’s marksman hastily placed the ball an inch off the net leaving spectators including Chief Patron of Sports President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf piercing for goal.
