Atraco coach Sam Timbe has criticised the tactics Sudanese team El-Amal are employing ahead of Sunday’s Orange Confederation Cup return leg in Sudan.

The Ugandan tactician believes that El-Amal are employing negative methods to derail his team before Sunday’s clash.

“We have received word that we shall travel to Atbara [where the game will be played], on Saturday, just a day before the match.”

“Personally, I see this as a ploy by the hosts to fatigue my team,” said the 50-year-old.

Timbe also has concerns over the match officials from Somalia.

Atraco arrived in Khartoum yesterday and will have two training sessions before heading 400 kilometres south.

With a healthy 2-0 first leg lead, Atraco need a draw of any kind to progress to the second round, where they will play either Mozambique's Costa do Sol or Uniao Flamingo Santos of Botswana.
