In a candid admission ahead of their crucial CAF Confederations Cup clash against Academica do Lobito, Dreams FC coach Karim Zito has pointed to a critical issue plaguing his team - a lack of experience leading to conceding goals.

The spotlight is on Dreams FC as they prepare to face off against their Angolan opponents in another thrilling encounter at the Baba Yara Stadium.

The Ghana FA Cup champions prevailed in their third group game against the Angolan club after cruising to a 3-2 away win over their opponent on at the Estádio 11 de Novembro in Luanda.

Dreams FC opened the scoring after just 10 minutes into the game through youngster Abdul Aziz Issah but the host responded quickly and grabbed the equalizer four minutes later through Nelo.

Putting up a stellar performance, veteran striker John Antwi scored to restore Dreams FC’s lead in the 58th minute before Gael Aholou Avocevou sealed victory in the 88th minute.

The home team reduced the deficit on stoppage time through Samuel Cachimbombo.

"The unfortunate side of our story is all goals scored against was not workable we can stop it," he said

"It was little mistakes due to lack of experience I can cite an example when we were in Tunisia when the ball was going to the boy I said play save and he decided to stop then he fell down and that was the goal.

"When you look at the second goal out of nothing the goalkeeper made a mistake then it was a goal when you look at the rate at which we are been scored I will say it is about lack of experience,"
