EXPRESS’ Danish technical director Jan Fray says his club needs to capitalise on their dominance to advance on the continent.
Fray, said his side lost concentration in their CAF Cup first leg tie against Green Buffaloes, allowing the Zambians rally to a 2-1 win in Lusaka on Saturday.
“We were the dominant side. We were controlling the game but when we took the lead, we lost concentration and let the other team into the game.
“We shall not allow this to happen again,” said Fray, who was in charge of Express for the first time.
Fray said even Fred Okello’s opening goal came after several clear chances were wasted.
“We only need to put some few things right to win comfortably —we must strengthen the midfield since it is the heart of the game.”

r The SC Villa team that shocked Angola’s AS Aviacao will be treated to a heroes welcome when it arrives today afternoon.
Villa defeated Aviacao 2-1 in the African Champions League on Saturday. Hundreds of fans are expected to paint Entebbe airport blue.
“The fans will be there in large numbers and we shall later have a luncheon in Entebbe,” club secretary Edward Luyimbazi Mugalu said.
Goals by Alex Isabirye and Vincent Tendwa steered Villa to victory and Micho Sredojevic’s side will advance if they avoid defeat at Namboole in the return leg next week.
The unexpected victory was sweeter owing to the fact that Villa played with a make shift defence that was without Timothy Batabaire, Robert Tumusiime and Philip Obwiny.
Villa return to action in the local league on Tuesday after the league committee NFLC postponed Friday’s Villa-URA clash for a third time.
According to NFLC rules, a club gets two clear days of rest after coming back from an international engagement.
The other league games will go on as scheduled. Police face Masaka on Friday, while Express face KCC on Saturday.
